I recently started a newsletter for the EarthSTEPS Green Building Division. As part of that newsletter, I am going to be highlighting a green builder in every issue. Here's a copy of the first Green Builder Spotlight. A copy of the entire newsletter can be found here.
I would love to get feedback on the newsletter... what kind of information do you want to hear about green building in Florida!?

LD Callaghan, Inc. of Crawfordville, FL, build their homes to FGBC Green Home standards. Now, they have recently added ENERGY STAR to their list of certifications, and will soon complete their first ENERGY STAR certified home.
LD Callaghan homes incorporate simple, practical, green building practices with stunning custom touches such as made-to-order stained glass windows. While relatively new to the green building world, they have quickly earned a reputation for building high quality, energy efficient homes. An example of a recent and stunning green spec home (sold!!!) can be found here.
----For each newsletter, we aim to highlight a different green builder. The intent of this section is to inform and connect builders, and to highlight the different scales and approaches to green building - from custom single-family builders to production-scale developers. From focusing entirely on energy-efficient practices, to the most eco-friendly products and techniques available. If you or someone you know would be interested in being spotlighted in a future issue, please contact us.
EarthSTEPS Green Building Division looks forward to working with you. Together, we can help to shape the built environment of Florida.
