Building tastes reflect our times. When developers and designers plan to recreate the look of an historic home or neighborhood, or design distinctive homes in a contemporary, new way, traditionally-styled siding, trim, shutters and roofing styles can help bring the vision to life and preserve local character. You want the products you specify and/or install to be more sustainable than other products you might choose. Your challenge — and the focus of this educational unit — is to find materials that satisfy these three criteria — charming, durable and green — and specify those into projects from the ground up, including siding, shutters and roofing. This program is registered with AIA for 1 HSW/SD hour; with NAHB for 1 hour and with NARI for .1 CEU. Take the course.
