THE GREEN ADVANTAGEGUEST COTTAGE
THE GREEN ADVANTAGE
Green amenities represent the value of a sustainable home and the environmental benefits and satisfaction realized, above that of the standard home. The Green amenities can range from 10% to 25% of the price of a home.

Sometimes it’s easy to see, for instance, an on-demand water heater, paperstone counters (100% recycled paper) or flooring made of bamboo or cork. But many of the green amenities are not so obvious – such as a high efficiency heating and cooling system, tight wall systems with extra insulation or the use of paint and glues that don’t release toxic chemicals into the air.

Green amenities guarantee a homeowner a high performance and healthy home. Pringle Creek Community ensures this value through third-party rating with the industry leader and highly respected LEED Certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) through the US Green Building Council. All of the homes in Pringle Creek Community are LEED certified!
