Greenville SC Builder Founded on Green Principles
Addison Homes was built to be different.
Founder Todd Usher is a Clemson University grad who worked eight years at Milliken & Company while renovating houses on the side. Inspired to build his own business, he experienced an “aha” moment while attending an EarthCraft House™ training course: Todd realized a personal commitment to sustainable principles—complemented by well-defined processes and procedures—could be the keystone of a residential construction firm.
Thus in 2002, Addison Homes became the only Greenville SC builder to certify 100% of its homes to rigorous “green” performance standards.
Todd’s wife, Michelle—herself a 15-year marketing veteran at Milliken & Company—joined the Addison Homes team as VP/Sales & Marketing in 2008. Together they’ve assembled a top notch staff along with a network of vendors and trade partners all dedicated to building beautiful—and beautifully efficient—HighPerformance homes.
The Greenville SC builder’s commitment to sustainable design/construction has been recognized with multiple awards, including US Green Building Council-South Carolina Chapter’s Leadership in Green Building Award, National Association of Home Builders’ Green Advocacy Award, EarthCraft House Regional Builder of the Year and Greenville Home Builders Association Builder of the Year. Addison Homes projects have garnered honors such as the EarthCraft House Gold Project of the Year and Southern Home & Garden Bridge Award for Green Building, just to name a few.
Addison Homes’ goal is to be the Greenville SC builder of choice for clients who want a Healthy, HighPerformance Homewithout necessarily paying a “high performance” price. The mission is minimizing environmental impact while maximizing homeowner value.
