The Arlington Designer Homes team is committed to green, energy efficient home building for the health benefits, cost savings, and reduced environmental footprint for our buyers and our community.

Our custom, single-family houses are energy-efficient, ENERGY STAR® certified homes. We are honored to be one of only a handful of custom home builders to have completed multiple Arlington County Green Home Choice Program Award-Winning homes and multiple Falls Church City Green Home Award-Winning homes. We are also proud to have received the first ever Gold-level Green Building Certifications in Arlington and in Falls Church from the National Standard for Green Building.

Building green homes offers numerous benefits to the homeowner. For example, green homes provide increased energy efficiency and a reduction in harmful emissions. ENERGY STAR® homes with advanced insulation systems mean lower utility bills and fewer emissions. Our green homes also produce decreased runoff that can cause erosion, flooding, and water pollution. Even our building process leaves a smaller footprint on the planet. We offer a reduction in the large amount of solid waste typically generated by standard home construction practices.

Arlington Designer Homes offers a collection of green options and features. ENERGY STAR®, which is a US government-sponsored program designed to encourage us all to become more energy efficient, centers on energy usage and helping consumers learn how to be more efficient consumers. ENERGY STAR® homes help people save money and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Other green options include advanced insulation systems, low/no VOC paints and adhesives, central vacuum systems, solar hot water heaters, and geothermal heating and air conditioning systems. We also offer pre-finished siding, eco-friendly driveways, and radon abatement systems.
