EarthCraft House

The EarthCraft House program is a voluntary green building program that serves as a blueprint for healthy, comfortable homes that reduce utility bills and protect the environment. Dominion Custom Homes homes earn the EarthCraft designation because the company’s builders are trained to follow the program’s technical requirements.
