The importance of taking care of our planet is not lost on you, nor is it lost on our company. That's why Cornerstone Building Solutions is proud to be a supporter of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Green Building Program. Did you know the high quality modular construction process is inherently green? Also with superior modular construction there is less waste during the construction process as almost every piece of scrap is collected and recycled. Many of the "Green Building" standards adopted by the National Association of Home Builders are incorporated into every home we build.
