While meeting the needs of present-day families, Forest Homes Building Systems also "ensures the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." That is one of many definitions of sustainable (green) building. We are proud to identify its primary criteria - all of which we handily meet.
Consider the volume of material you see in overflowing dumpsters at traditional construction sites versus the minimal waste produced by our Fully Engineered Building System. Clearly our process minimizes the use and waste of materials, thereby decreasing both the clear-cutting of forests, soil disturbance, erosion, and additional landfills, all of which negatively impact the environment.
By locating our facility in nearby Selinsgrove or Ridgeland, we also minimize the number of miles our materials must be transported, also helping to conserve energy and natural resources.
Throughout our homes we use durable, low-maintenance, recycled materials.

The building envelope of a BSPS Project is constructed in a controlled indoor environment for optimal quality. Exposure to potentially damaging weather is also decreased by our compressed construction time. That means greater energy efficiency. In addition, all mechanical equipment and appliances chosen for a BSPS Project have high energy-efficiency ratings.
A BSPS Project also features low-flow fixtures and water-saving appliances.
With BSPS, the orientation of the house on its site, cross ventilation, and roof overhangs work together for optimal interior heating and cooling.
Indoor Environmental Quality
Thermal comfort, excellent indoor-outdoor air flow, and maximum moisture control are beneficial results of the Fully Engineered Building System, creating a healthy indoor environment for you and your family.
