Green Building

Bauhaus Custom Homes is one of only a few home builders in the DFW Metroplex who can truly build a green home. Designing and building a high-performance home can be a challenge for a builder or designer that has never done this before. That’s not us!

We pride ourselves on our use of the highest quality green building techniques and materials to create one-of-a-kind luxury residences. Our homes have been continually recognized throughout Dallas, TX for their sustainability and unique beauty, and we save our clients money on long-term operational costs with our energy efficient designs.

Our Green Building Programs

We have designed and built several Green Built Texas, ENERGY STAR, LEED, and Certified Green Professional™ homes. For more information on the respective programs, please see the overview below. We can meet the highest green building standards if our clients desire to do so.

We are proud to offer new homes that have earned the ENERGY STAR label. ENERGY STAR qualified new homes are substantially more energy efficient than homes built to the minimum code requirements. Our ENERGY STAR qualified new homes are independently verified by a third-party Home Energy Rater to ensure they meet ENERGY STAR energy efficiency guidelines. These homes are better for the environment and better for you.

The Certified Green Professional™ (CGP) designation recognizes builders, remodelers, and other industry professionals who include green building principles into their homes, without driving up the cost of construction. Classwork leading to the designation provides a solid background in green building methods. It also gives participants the tools they need to reach consumers, from the organization leading the charge in support of market-driven green building solutions to professionals in the residential construction industry.

Green Built Texas is a voluntary partnership of local home builders, industry supporters, and sponsors committed to creating awareness and interest in the construction of higher-performance, lower-impact homes in Texas. The program has a construction protocol that Home Builder Association (HBA) members have deemed essential in order for a home to be recognized by the program. Homes built to this protocol conform to higher standards of:

  • Site management
  • Waste recycling
  • Water efficiency
  • Indoor air quality
  • Energy efficiency
  • Materials
  • Homeowner education

LEED for Homes promotes the design and construction of high-performance homes: energy efficient, resource efficient, and healthy for occupants. A home that achieves LEED certification has been designed to maximize fresh air indoors, minimizing exposure to airborne toxins and pollutants. It also has the potential to use 20 to 30 percent less energy—and some up to 60 percent less—than a home built to code. Less energy use also means lower utility bills every month!
