Meridian, ID (PRWEB) April 17, 2009
Green Log Awards Inc. is proud to announce that voting for the 2009 Green Log Home Awards is open. The Green Log Home Awards were created in 2008 to locate and shine a spotlight on innovative green building solutions. After a very successful first year, they are back! Last year garnered thousands of votes and showcased some astounding green building solutions. This year, voter turnout is anticipated to exceed 2008.
Meeting the "Green" Demand -
The combination of new building regulations, enhanced rebate programs, and a lower cost of building mean that green building products and services are in high demand. The Green Log Awards are proud to help connect home builders with the companies who are leading the way.
Voting Process -
Both public voting and judges panel voting will take place from April 16th - May 7th. The voting panel includes: Jim Young, President, PrecisionCraft Log Homes; Matt Franklin, Lead Designer, Mountain Architects; Charles Bevier, Editor, Building Systems Magazine; Allison Friedman, Editor, RateItGreen.com; Donna Peak, Editor, Country's Best Log Homes Magazine; and Barbara Kessler, Editor, GreenRightNow.com.
PrecisionCraft Log Homes created the Green Log Awards to help find green building solutions for clients and other home builders. Upon the realization that locating innovative and useful green building solutions could be difficult, they looked for a creative way to discover these products and present them to the public. Thus the Green Log Home Awards were born.
This year's innovative nominees include: Rubbersidewalks (pavers created from recycled tires and plastic), Eleek (sustainable lighting created from recycled materials), Teragren (bamboo countertops), and Oregon Wind Corporation (creators of the Urban Turban).
