E3D Home's are valued higher than "Code-Built" homes for many good reasons! Appraisers understand energy-efficient homes are the least expensive to own, increase considerably faster in value, and are much, much easier to resell. These are a few of the reasons we go far beyond “Code-built” and the prevailing Building and Energy Codes while keeping the cost-per-square-foot competitive on a sustainable E3D Home!
The term “sustainability” is often used in discussions about the environment. But not everyone is certain about the meaning of sustainability in homes. Most dictionaries define “sustainability” as the ability to continue an action without the risk of failure or collapse.
In environmental terms, sustainability implies that an action can be continued indefinitely with a manageable impact on the environment. Because of the health of our environment is closely linked with the health of society in general, sustainable practices ensure that the Earth’s resources will be available for future generations to enjoy …and there will be an Earth to enjoy them on. Sustainability aims to balance the needs of human societies with the needs of the environment, preserving both for all creatures on Earth to make use of and enjoy.
In building terms, a sustainable home is strong, well-built, and high-performing because it is able to stand-up to the environment indefinitely! So to deliver the best possible sustainable home in the USA today we build with the most optimal combinations of minimalist, modern designs, commercial and residential building materials, and techniques available.
E3D Homes are Five Star Energy rated, exceed the 2009 International Residential Code (IRC), and surpass the 2015 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC). Every E3D Home is sustainable, designed to withstand 120+ MPH winds, and constructed to last 100+ years…and none of our solar-grid E3D Homes have a monthly or annual electrical utility bill.
Thanking you in advance for
your interest in Enteligreen E3D Homes, I

INTRODUCTION TO ENTELIGREEN'S SCALABLE, PROPRIETARY E3D HOMES
Enteligreen E3D Homes are single-story, one, two, three, and four bedroom dwellings that are Energy-efficient, Economical, and Earth-friendly Designed (E3D)!
E3D's are sustainable, exceptionally high-performance, solar-grid residences that are affordable to fifty-seven percent of new home purchasers across the USA.
These include first-time home buyers, singles, single parents, downsizing couples, widows, widowers, pre-retirees, retirees, and seniors. But Enteligreen E3D Homes aren't just more of the same, “Code-built” households!
“How many square feet of home do we get for the price?” is usually a new home buyer’s first question. This “price-per-square-foot mentality" drives down energy efficiency, durability, and the quality of high-performance, sustainable homes. Track home builders are forced to compete with other builders in the marketplace constructing “more is better” low-performance homes that have outrageous monthly utility bills. This type of temporary, expensive housing that is typical in the USA, is designed and engineered to last around sixty or so years.
