Beautiful Custom Homes and Home Renovations are
Built Better by BPC Green Builders

BPC Green Builders is dedicated to the design, construction and renovation of beautiful homes that benefit both homeowners and the environment.

BPC creates homes people love to live in for the same reasons people love any well designed and well built custom home. But, as one of Connecticut’s first and leading green custom home builders, we build homes that deliver many more benefits than conventional homes can. To do this, BPC Green Builders uses home design and residential construction best practices from one or more of the following home building approaches:

| Green Building | Sustainable Building | EPA Energy Star | DOE Zero Energy Ready Homes | Passive House PHIUS (Passivhaus) | LEED for Homes |
| Net Zero Homes | High Performance Home | Building Science | American Lung Association* Health House |

The results are green home renovations and new green custom homes that are beautiful, comfortable and a joy to live in. Plus they are also highly functional, easy on the environment and provide homeowners energy savings for the life of their homes.

If you haven’t considered building your new home using today’s green building approaches, explore our site and learn the many benefits of building, owning and living in a green home. You may be surprised how much you’ve been missing.

Why Green Building Makes Sense for Everyone Today

Custom homes and major home renovations that are built using green building approaches make sense for virtually all homeowners. They offer greater comfort by eliminating cold winter drafts. All year long they keep the quality of your indoor air virtually free of pollen, dust, and other irritants. But that’s not all; a green home will lower your cost of home ownership by reducing utility bills and maintenance costs. Learn more of the many benefits of green home ownership.

Western Connecticut's Premier Green Custom Home Builder

Since 1998, BPC Green Builders has been helping homeowners in Western Connecticut and Northern Westchester County, NY design and build wonderful homes. Homes that are beautiful, functional, improve their owners’ quality of life, while also being environmentally responsible. We build homes where high energy efficiency creates a more, not less, comfortable home and lowers the cost of home ownership. We build homes to meet or exceed a number of green building standards such as Energy Star, Zero Energy Ready Home, Passive House PHIUS (Passivhaus), Net Zero and LEED for Homes.

Exceptional Green Home Remodeling and Home Renovations

BPC Green Builders can do a complete green home renovation, reusing what we can of the original home while adding green building approaches that will update the old home and offer the benefits of green home ownership. Renovations are often the best strategy if a home is located where either historical restrictions, building code issues or increased taxes might come into play if the old home is demolished and a new home is built on the site.

Green Homes are Better Homes

More and more homeowners are taking advantage of the benefits of green building.

As long as there is nothing to give up, who doesn’t want a home that costs less to heat and cool? Who doesn’t want a home that keeps out drafts and is well insulated? No one prefers a home constructed with materials that emit toxic or noxious chemicals.

While home builders today may use some techniques that only “green builders” used 10-15 years ago, many mainstream homeowners want more green benefits than the average home builder can provide. They want a home that won’t be harder to sell in the future (or sell at a lower price) than another home built today with the benefits of green building, because demand for green homes is increasing faster than you might think.

“We were surprised and delighted to find in Mike Trolle, of BPC Green Builders, a local builder who not only gave us the kind of house we wanted, but helped us figure out what that was in the first place. His ideas about what a house needs — and doesn’t need — were invaluable. He even helped us find an architect whose ideas were in sync with ours.”
Tom and Stacy, Westport, Connecticut
“We found your expertise in building science to be of great help in planning the project and in the selection of appropriate equipment and materials. BPC’s management of the subcontractors and communication with us always met our expectations. Moreover, BPC was conscientious and ethical in all aspects of the work. We would be pleased to recommend BPC without reservation.”
Christine and Monte, Bethany, Connecticut
“As architects, it has also been a sincere pleasure to work for Mike. He is an extraordinary client who has been able to utilize our skills and experience. The working relationship that we have developed is based upon trust and confidence, and has been tested by the realities and trials of construction.”
Thomas RC Hartman, AIA, Coldham Architects LLC
“BPC is in the forefront of this commitment. Our company has benefited from our professional and personal interaction with Mike and Chris Trolle. From client introduction to final walk through, the drive for total customer satisfaction is clear.”
Dean Demague, B & D Controlled Air Corporation

Choose Your Shade of Green Building

Today, building or renovating your home using green building approaches almost always makes sense. And, you can choose from many “shades of green” building now available.

Some approaches that were only used on “green” homes 10-15 years ago are now often used by mainstream builders. That’s because they are simply smarter building approaches.

Meanwhile, green building methods and technology continually improve. They now provide you with more and greater benefits if you wish to build or renovate your home using methods typical home builders don’t use. You don’t have to build a home that is at the very cutting edge of green building to achieve significant benefits. You can build as green as fits your needs and objectives best.

Benefits of Building a Typical Custom Home

Custom home builder BPC Green Builder built this home in CT
  • It’s easier to find non-green home builders in our area
  • Some think the statements below are true.

    They are NOT.

  • Less expensive to design and build*
  • Typical construction is tried and true and therefore safer**

 

*This is NOT always true. Green homes can cost the same, more or even less to build than conventional homes. When you factor in the cost of ownership and energy, conventional homes are usually more expensive. We can prove it.

 

**This is simply NOT true. BPC Green Builders’ methods of construction are better, stronger, more durable, less toxic and as, if not more, carefully engineered for performance than conventional homes. Conventional methods are just older and less up-to-date.  BPC green homes are safer, more comfortable and healthier than conventional homes. We can prove it.
