"Have you ever heard of the 'Well Standard'? It's about comfort, nourishment, lighting and mindfulness. It's about focusing on people, not buildings; that the real role of a building is to keep us healthy, happy, safe and comfortable. Energy is just an input, a variable; the fact that a comfortable building will use a lot less of it is a happy coincidence." - Lloyd Alter, 12.29.15.
winning Absolute Green Homes, Inc. is a full service green
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, not only received the official designation as a
LEED Platinum Certified Home, but is also the
recipient of Best Renovation Of The Year Award.
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.
What makes us different, and why should you choose to work with us? All of our new building & renovation projects requires a well-thought design approach for each unique situation. We pride ourselves in being able to supply you with award-winning design services; we're a small, very creative and innovative team, consisting of designers, draftsmans and licensed engineers. Our architectural designs are drawn with CAD (Computer Assisted Design), which means you can visualize the entire project taking life in 3D coming to life before your eyes, in your own home.
But enough about us! Will we be a good match? Our unique detailed proposal consist of hundreds of line items, spread over a few dozen pages. Each line describes the scope of work, brand name, model, quantity and a price for that single item. Say goodbye to confusion, challenges and arguments often associated with the construction process! You'll know exactly where every single dollar is going. You'll know how many lights, switches, outlets, etc. This approach greatly facilitates the upgrades that will inevitably occur during construction. Yes, no matter how well planned your project is, change orders will unavoidably happen, fortunately greatly improving your project.
We believe that transparency is the foundation for a successful and exceptional experience, resulting in a superior construction project that is especially appreciated by those who had past renovation experience, the seasoned homeowner.
Last but not least, we all need better homes, not bigger ones! We can make your home - any existing home - more comfortable, much healthier, definitely cheaper to maintain and operate, and with a little tweaking, even "bigger", without expanding! We are Westchester's retrofitting specialist.
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 the budget!
To get a glimpse of some of these Working Showrooms, browse our award winning website (this site went online in 1997). Our site showcases our projects and offers green tips and a wealth of industry news as well. You can also find references from the company's biggest fans - it's clients. And finally, you can read reviews from neutral parties, the press.
