Choosing a good team

The first and one of the most important steps to green remodeling is choosing a good team to work with. It’s very helpful in doing a green remodel, to have as many members of your team to have as much green remodeling & green design experience as possible. It’s particularly helpful to have both your architect or designer and contractor to be well experienced with green remodeling. If that isn’t possible, then it’s essential that they each, at the least, have a positive attitude about it, and an interest in learning about it. It’s also very important that the contractor have subs that are willing to fully carry out all the steps to green remodeling that are going to be done. For many remodels, it’s helpful to involve a consultant to help bring the rest of the team up to speed on one or more aspects of green remodeling.
