Is building a home green a lot more expensive?

    Yes and no. The “trick” with most green improvements is that it may cost more up front, but green homes tend to be very efficient and you’ll save money in the long term on things like heating costs and energy bills. It’s generally an up-front investment for a long-term gain. Thankfully, the same efficiency that’s the hallmark of green construction also translates to economic benefit for the homeowner. However, green doesn’t have to mean exorbitantly expensive, as the citation shows. It’s possible to create green homes without breaking the bank. It doesn’t have any concrete numbers, but I highly recommend the citation as an exploration of how to create affordable green homes.
