The "Greenest" Homes in Central Florida

We just found out that two of our homes are finalists for Highest Points Scores at the FGBC Awards Ceremony in Dunedin, Florida this April 7th. Since these are the only two homes in Central Florida, we can make this statement that this is the greenest home in Central Florida.

Would you like your home to be energy-efficient? Do you want water-conserving appliances and fixtures? Would you like a low-maintenance landscape? What about durable constructions? Most of our customers want these things. This is Green...


Here’s a list that I compiled of potential benefits related to the design, product selection and construction techniques that might be considered when planning a new home or renovation project:

  • Community Impact

  • Durable Construction

  • Energy Efficiency

  • Environmental Awareness

  • Health and Comfort

  • Operations and Maintenance

  • Property Characteristics

  • Resource Utilization

  • Site Development

  • Waste Management

  • Water Conservation

Narrow House was also voted Best In The Nation at the 2020 National Home Builders Association 55+ Housing Awards. It features many green, energy-efficient and innovative products and ideas.
