Each year, the EarthCraft House Awards honors builders, developers, renovators and manufacturers that are dedicated to protecting the environment through sustainable design and construction of homes. The Outstanding Project Manager award is presented in recognition of excellence in building and superior leadership in promoting the EarthCraft house program. All EarthCraft homes are Energy Star certified, and are designed to be the most high performance, durable, and resource-efficient homes you can buy. Demonstrating their commitment to minimizing their environmental impact, Windsong Properties builds only EarthCraft-certified new homes at their Woodstock active adult courtyard community, Somerset.
