Reynolds Plantation and LINKS Magazine are pleased to announce the opening of the first-ever LINKS Magazine Green House on April 22, Earth Day. The energy efficient home is constructed by Linger Longer Homes in partnership with Georgia Power and Energy Star. The LINKS Magazine Green House is an exciting and innovative example of using green building practices that are environmentally friendly and efficient.
Reynolds Plantation is a community entrenched in a long history of environmental awareness and stewardship of the land. Linger Longer Homes, headquartered at Lake Oconee, home of Reynolds Plantation, has consistently met or exceeded guidelines set by the National Association of Home Builders.
"At Linger Longer Homes our commitment to the land is our driving force," says Mark Conway, director of construction. "Not only do we use many materials that are respectful to the environment, I believe we have built a product that encompasses the healthy living aspect as well."
The LINKS Magazine Green House adheres to the EarthCraft certification system - a stringent 150-point environmental scale developed by the Greater Atlanta Homebuilders Association and Southface, supported by government and industry leaders. The EarthCraft certification requires strict attention to many "green" standards, including energy efficiency, building materials, indoor air quality, water quality and use, site planning and homebuyer education.
