"in the future, green will be just another color."

- Thumb, October 2010   More Quotes Please!


Award winning Absolute Green Homes, Inc. is a full service green design/build firm based in South Salem, a hamlet of the town of Lewisboro, New York.  Our company is one of the few "committed to 100% ENERGY STAR Homes Builders companies"  serving homeowners in Westchester County, New York. One of our latest project, The Beach House recently received the official designation as a LEED Platinum Certified Home (with 90 Points!).

The company's modest beginning goes back to August 1988, and was registered in the Bronx by Sylvain Côté, which is still its president-owner to this day. We recently renamed the firm from Absolute Remodeling Corp., simply to better reflect all of our services, which for over two decades now have been much more than just remodeling projects.

We handle a wide range of projects, including additions and new green homes, but still specialize in higher end interior renovations, such as kitchens, bathrooms, and basements, as well as specialized items, i.e. custom built-ins, bars, wine cellars and furniture.

Last but not least, we all need better homes, not bigger ones!  We can make your home - or any existing homes - more comfortable, much healthier, definitely cheaper to maintain and operate, and with a little tweaking, even "bigger", without even expanding!  We are Westchester retrofitting specialist.  Perhaps it is time for a new term for what we do; How about rebuilders?!?

Our Showrooms

You can find our showrooms just about everywhere in Westchester, NY  - We consider our completed projects our "Working Showroom" and our clients our "Best Salespeople."  Here's how and why:

What we call a Working Showroom is an actual, functional project that has been built around existing conditions, restrictions, obstructions and finally budgets, as opposed to showrooms found in a retailer’s display where the only limitation is the designer’s imagination, and/or the budget!

To get a glimpse of some of these Working Showrooms, browse our award winning web site (this site went on line January 1997).  We have been proud of effectively using the Internet to showcase our projects and to offer green tips and a wealth of industry news as well.

On this site, you can also find references from the company's "biggest fans"  - it's clients.   Or you can read reviews from a neutral party, the press.

Whatever project you're contemplating, you're sure to find the solution you are looking for right here, with us.
- And by the way, we do want your project to be our newest showroom, and you to become our newest salesperson!
Please make sure to inquire today.
