EarthCraft Builders Council

The EarthCraft Builders Council meets the third Thursday of every month at 2:30 p.m. at HBAR headquarters, alternating months with Viridiant’s Building Science Lecture Series. The EarthCraft Builders Council is open to HBAR members committed to green, high-performance home building. The Council is designed to increase awareness of EarthCraft certified homes, develop a network of informed builders, and drive values of certified homes.
