Green Structured Homes manufactures state-of-the-art modular homes that include both wood and steel frames. Her constructed homes are also environmentally friendly and easy to construct on site. This reduces the environmental impact, and reduces the number of people needed on the construction site. The construction process also lowers the potential cost of each home. Each home can be built faster as well.
Her business also brings jobs to the local community. Much of the material used to construct the homes will be local. It includes steel that contains content that is 60 percent recyclable. Energy-efficient homes can help to greatly reduce utility bills. For some, depending where they live and their home’s construction, there may also be tax incentives for going green.
Barbara Stokes may also have tapped into a new market with her innovative and energy-efficient homes. It may also have placed her in a position to pursue government contracts more aggressively. Of course, the biggest benefit of her company is that her homes are easier on the environment. Companies that honor the environment will lead the way going forward.
