Back in 2003, builder New Tradition Homes began investigating how to build the most efficient, healthiest homes for future homeowners. Efficient building has always been a priority for New Tradition, a home builder that primarily focuses on new construction projects in Tri-Cities and Vancouver, Washington. As energy code has evolved over the years in Washington, New Tradition has kept up and has even built above and beyond code requirements. Their goal? To implement energy efficient building practices now to prepare for and exceed future energy codes.
