    I’m in shock that this is the first I’m hearing about this. As good of a thing that I think it is it still amazes me that it has been mandatory to build green. I know modular homes are growing nationwide and are considered to be a type of green building. I wonder if Dallas residents will now purchase more factory assembled homes like this and what the exact standards are to be classified as green building.
