A Gibson home with EarthCraft certification is one that has been designed, and built, to suit the unique climate conditions of the Southeast (specifically central Virginia). We are one of the few builders that have exceeded these standards for years. One example is that our walls have cellulose insulation with an R21 rating (current 2012 code is R13).
Our homes are built for energy, water and resource efficiency. One of the key factors is that our homes are air-tight and designed with enhanced indoor air quality.
What this means to your family is a healthier, more sustainable lifestyle.
What are the benefits of an EarthCraft home?
