Southern Traditions is committed to building beautiful homes for future generations to enjoy. As a part of that commitment, we have developed a new series of “green homes” which not only incorporate the gracious beauty and style that Southern Traditions is known for, but also the latest design and technology from leading manufactures to create environmentally friendly homes.” We have added a new dimension to the details of our homes --homes that are more energy efficient with better indoor air quality and overall make a more positive impact on the environment for years to come.

As a member of the Florida Green Building council, our goal with this new series of homes is to build homes that can become LEED certified using the latest design and technology from leading manufactures. The technology we utilize will include but will not be limited to Moen low-flow shower heads, GE compact florescent light bulbs, tankless water heaters, high efficiency 14 SEER air handlers, low VOC paints, recycled deck materials. Buyers of these new “green homes will reap the results by receiving lower average monthly utility bills, healthier indoor air quality and ultimately resulting in better resale value over the long run.

By building green we are not only demonstrating our commitment to sustainability and the environment but our commitment to you!

We invite you to contact us to discuss these “Green Homes” or how we can build your own custom home with all the “green features” you desire.
