Project Statement

A project statement (200 to 500 words in length) describing the entry, the builder/remodeler’s scope of work, and any aspects of the home/ project that may be of special interest should accompany each entry. Green home entries should base their project statement on innovative and creative solutions to sustainability with emphasis on design with mimum waste; maximizing renewable products and techniques; maximizing energy efficiency; maximizing water efficiency; creating healthy indoor air quality; maximizing reclaimed and recycled materials; and minimizing use of virgin materials. Your project statement will appear in SC Builder Journal magazine, so be as descriptive as you can. Use language and explanations that readers will understand.
