    Yes, there are many benefits that you can potentially realize for both yourself and the environment by making a green addition to your house. First of all, making the addition energy efficient (well insulated, good solar strategies, naturally ventilated) can help you save on energy bills (the exact amount depends on your climate and square footage of addition). Also, the addition can be a more pleasant space for you to spend time in, which is very important as well. Furthermore, a green addition will have a higher indoor air quality thanks to the materials you use. Finally, by recycling or reusing former materials you can not only realize an impact by not sending those materials to the landfill (and not paying the associated fees) but also by not incurring the costs, both economically and environmentally, of using virgin materials.
