Green Ridge Builders is a general contractor for both residential and commercial construction. Our mission is to be more customer-focused than our competition, to be as versatile as possible, to be environmentally responsible and to deliver truly custom projects.
One of our recent projects, the addition and renovations of Lehman’s Old Time Hardware in Kidron, Ohio, won two national awards. We received a 2009 Chrysalis Award and a 2009 silver Master Design Award. This very green project included disassembling three pre-Civil War structures (that were slated for demolition by a developer) and reconstructing them inside the new addition. A warehouse and three houses on the site were deconstructed, in lieu of demolished, and all the materials found new uses except two dumpsters for all four buildings.
Another recent green, and fun, project involved a new home based on the design of a yurt. This round house included adaptive re-use of a grain bin roof, super-insulated walls and ceiling, much recycled and reused building materials, composting toilet, gray water reuse, limited site disturbance, etc. With careful planning and design, all the waste from the project fit into the bed of one pick-up truck.
Fitting with our focus on green building is our work with insulated concrete forms (ICF). We are certified installers for two ICF manufacturers. ICF walls provide one of the most energy efficient building envelopes available.
