Green building is the most recent trend in the building industry. It refers to a process of building engineering that produces a house using the least amount of natural resources and creating the smallest trail of debris afterwards. The idea of Green building is to make the smallest “Carbon” foot print possible in the building process.
The reduced impact of your building project can take many forms including:
Green can be accomplished in varying shades; Light Green with only a few systems to Dark Green for multiple systems and materials.

"To turn my childhood home into our family's dream home, we needed to find the right person for the job. We stopped looking after we met with Steve Horn. Steve, Mike, and the exceptionally qualified sub-contractors were able to take our ideas for the home and turn them into a reality. They always kept us informed, were there to always answer questions, guide us in making the right decisions and dealt with my never-ending changes. We loved working with everyone and highly recommend Mastercraft Design and Build."

"On April 22, 2011 at 8:05 P.M. a Category 4 tornado hit our neighborhood. I have a friend who owns Berkeley Lumber and asked him who he would recommend to rebuild our home. His answer was Steve Horn. From the First time we met with him he was concerned with our wishes to rebuild home. As you can see from the pictures we have a beautiful home we are proud of. Thanks Steve!"

"After interviewing five general contractors for the job. I felt very comfortable with Steve and the impressive resume he presented. Having done most of the work on our house myself and with the help of my friends, I was not about to let just anyone rebuild our dream home. With a list of excellent subcontractors, creative design, a good working knowledge of the residential industry and scheduling skills Steve was able to satisfy the insurance company and most important the homeowner. We were able to move in a week early. What a thrill."

"When we called you, you responded immediately. You knew exactly how to coordinate with the insurance company’s adjuster. The craftsmen which you brought to the job were excellent and knew how to restore a 1924 house to its original look using modern materials."
