Green Videos Now Available for Builders, Buyers
Two new educational videos are now available from the NAHB Production Group to help home builders and their customers learn more about green building.
The videos — one targeted to consumers, the other to home builders and remodelers — were produced and will be distributed to home builders associations through a grant from the Wells Fargo Foundation.
“The Green Home Guide: Connecting the Green Dots” provides prospective home owners with an introduction to green building, while "The Green Report” is geared to building industry professionals who are preparing to green their business practices.
Both videos also include a guide to green certification programs and rating systems, including the National Green Building Standard for residential construction.
Copies of the DVD are being sent later this spring to HBAs so they can use them in home shows, expos and educational sessions.
Attendees at the NAHB National Green Building Conference in Dallas May 8-10 will also receive complimentary copies of the DVDs.
Contact the NAHB Production Group to purchase a copy. The DVDs costs $25 each, plus shipping and handling. On-line Web versions and volume discounts are also available.
For more information, e-mail Dennis Harrison at NAHB, or call him at 800-368-5242 x8188.
