In its seventh year, Green Builder® magazine is looking for the best green homes that include sustainable features, innovative design, whole home performance, and integration with the natural environment. Winners will receive coverage in the December 2014 print and digital issues of Green Builder magazine, as well as on

The General cateogry allows entrants to submit their best projects. From the pool of submissions the judges pick out what they feel are the very best projects and then categorize them giving each entry a chance to shine on its own and not have to try to fit into a preconceived category. Third party certification is not required in the General category.

The Mainstream Green category requires a HERS rating of 50 or better. Judges look at innovation but specifically focus on the energy efficiency of a project.

This year, in addition to the General and Mainstream Green categories, Green Builder is announcing a new category dedicated to alternative building technology. With entry fees ranging from $69-$109 the contest is affordable and will be judged by a panel of respected builders and design professionals. Deadline for entries is July 25, 2014.
