A Green Home Awards Program that Goes “Above and Beyond”
Green Builder’s Annual Green Home of the Year Awards, now accepting entries, seeks to honor great design that also mitigates major environmental challenges.
After a year of frenzied home building and renovation, it’s time to put the nation’s best high-performance homes on display.
Green Builder magazine’s 14th annual Green Home of the Year Award competition is now accepting entries. This year, we’ve added award categories for projects that go “Above and Beyond” to address environmental risks and concerns.
For example, in California, you may be building fire-smart homes with metal roofs, ember-proof soffits and fiber cement siding. In Phoenix, you may be installing exterior roof insulation, extending overhangs, and adding mass to mitigate temperature swings. If you’re building in the Southeast, your project might include special flood- and hurricane-resistant measures. With this year’s GHOTY Awards, you have a chance to showcase this important, innovative work, and get the accolades you deserve.
Last year’s collection of award-winning homes and communities, featured in Green Builder, give you an idea of the caliber and scope of projects entered in our annual competition. Winners often use these awards as a stepping stone toward other national press articles and recognition, and become part of the legacy of great homes featured by Green Builder, winner of NAREE’s Best Residential Trade Publication award for eight consecutive years.
The window for entering projects is now open, and you have until October 29th, 2021 to finalize your entry. Please consider entering your single-family home, community, multifamily project, townhouse or apartment building into this year’s competition. We could all use some good news and inspiration. Why not demonstrate your mastery and innovation to the wider world!
