Resources & Registration


Single & Multi Family Checklists

The Green Built Homes Checklist (an excel xls file) contains all of the program requirements.  All homes must fill out and submit a GBH checklist, verified by a certified Green Built Homes Rater. 

Our multi family checklist is for projects larger than duplexes or triplexes.

The checklist contains pathways to certification under the main program, it also contains pathways to earn our sub-designations of Net Zero Energy, Net Zero Ready, Net Zero Water, and Regenerative.

Energy Raters

All Green Built Homes must use a third party Energy Rater, certified through the Green Built Alliance, to oversee the paperwork, verify that requirements have been met, and perform the required diagnostics testing and energy modeling through the HERS Index.
