Features and cost of being green?

Love that it's environmentally friendly. What are the costs compared to a conventional build and what unique characteristics are part of the house?

There are some additional costs associated with higher quality materials, insulation and mechanical systems- probably in the 10%-15% range. Otherwise, the differences are minimal. We paid particular attention to energy savings and low maintenance features.
