Green Building

Green home building is a cornerstone of  the  Northwoods community. Collaboration between the builders and the developer is creating a neighborhood rooted in healthy living, energy efficiency and energy conservation.

Examples of available sustainable new home components and features include low-VOC materials, Energy Star appliances, low-E windows, house wraps and radiant barriers, and air conditioning units with a minimum of 14.5 SEER per unit.  New homes at Northwoods will be rated by the Austin Energy Green Building program, a local program comparable to the U.S. Green Building Council LEED program.

Northwoods at Avery Ranch will be the first community in Texas to receive recognition for its sustainable practices from the Home Innovation Research Labs of the National Association of Homebuilders. Learn more about the community’s green features here
