Anderson Builders: On the leading edge of Green

“In 1987, James Anderson Builders constructed our home on Glen Lake. It was built with many environmentally friendly features. The wooden basement has kept our crawl space warmer and with less settling than the usual cement block foundation. Our ground water heat pump has been very efficient and economical to run. Our sunroom with two feet of stones under the tile floor has allowed us to capture the sun’s heat in the winter. We were very pleased with the attention to detail and Jim’s on the job supervision of all phases of the building process.”

– June and Jerry Powley
