Jazz Builders was one of the first builders in the Bay Area to offer sustainable features in their homes.  We encourage the use of "green" products and construction methods to leave a lighter footprint on our planet. We are experienced in implementing the Marin County Green Building guidelines and continually look for new construction methods to make our homes more sustainable.
