We at Colonial Homecrafters Ltd. believe strongly in sustainability and wanted to share some exciting news …
EarthCraft House Virginia recently chose our very own 401 Lynchell Place in Riverlake Colony (pictured bellow), as one of the TOP TEN MOST ENERGY EFFICIENT HOMES IN 2012. Colonial Homecrafters was only one of two local builders in the state of Virginia to be included and the majority of the homes nominated were significantly smaller than 401 Lynchell Place.
We are thrilled to be part of the current growing topic on everyone’s minds these days: Sustainability. Establishing a culture of conservation within our community is very important to us. “Going Green” is an initiative that encompasses goals to conserve and protect natural resources for future generations, and to protect human health through environmental stewardship.

We are extremely proud of this award and would like to thank EarthCraft House Virginia for this recognition.
EarthCraft House is a green building program that serves as a blueprint for healthy comfortable homes that reduce utility bills and protect the environment. The aim of the program is to help home builders be leaders in smart growth management and environmental stewardship. Their Mission is to advance sustainable, affordable, resource and energy efficient construction through education and technical support.
To date, EarthCraft Virginia has evolved into one of the largest regional green building programs in the country and continues to grow and provide a more sustainable future for all.
Today’s home buyers want to get the best bang for their buck. There are many factors that must be taken into consideration when determining the true cost of home ownership. It’s not just the mortgage that you will find yourself writing checks for. There are maintenance and repair costs as well. A durable energy efficient house can be more economical in the long run, even if it has a higher initial price tag.
Ultimately, we are committed to building better, healthier homes and neighborhoods. We’ve made a commitment to our home buyers and to our environment and are truly proud to be part of a greater green initiative each and every day.
Thanks again EarthCraft House Virginia!
