Here is a short PSA video about natural stone and its sustainable and LEED-friendly properties,
with HD video of the beautiful stonework at GreenCasaMaryland.
NATURAL STONE, like this stone from our partner Irwin Stone, is sustainable, emits no VOCs, needs no paint, and looks beautiful. Natural stone can be used for walls, floors and more. In this section you will find pictures, video and links to learn more about this natural construction material that is ideal for "Green", and LEED home construction projects.
Here is a High Resolution Picture Slideshow of what GCM has been doing with the Irwin Stone.
Irwin Stone is donating natural stone and beautiful marble for the GCM Fire Pit. The Fire Pit will add living quality LEED points, and will add to the landscaping and natural stone atmosphere and feel of GCM. Stone and marble are VOC-free, non toxic, lasts for years, are sustainable, and are good choices for natural construction materials.
