Ashley WagarOn Wednesday April 13 2011, The Green Committee of the Shasta MLS was pleased to present Ashley Wagar of Ochoa and Shehan Builders at the General Membership meeting. Ashley spoke about the many aspects to building Green in the current housing market.Ashley Wagar of Ochoa and ShehanTitle 24 itemsIt’s a complex subject, but one in which every informed REALTOR should be proficient. The rules are ever changing, and new materials and techniques arrive on the scene all the time. Of interest was the number of trade-offs that must be made, like say between a tight building envelope and good air quality for the interior. What can seem Green practice at first might not be so environmentally responsible when the whole picture is taken into consideration, including materials manufacturing waste, and shipping distance.

Ashley brought a presentation that included several examples of Green building materials and Title 24 (building Code) mandated fixtures. Thanks go to the Green Committee of our local REALTORS for this informative and thought provoking discussion. Skip Murphy.
