Start-up builder Wheelhaus Inc. has received Certified Green standing from TRA Certification for its eco-friendly line of park models, according to the Etna, Wyo.-based company.
Wheelhaus said it has been labeling products with the Certified Green insignia and have attained the GOLD status.
The company’s park models have an exterior siding, ceiling and skirting that are made from reclaimed wood from nearby Wyoming fences. Appliances are Energy Star, faucets are low-flow and many of the materials are from local sources.
On-site, Wheelhaus will be using all-native plants that do not require excessive watering. This practice is referred to as ‘Xeriscaping.’ These plants are low maintenance, saving huge amounts of water.
At the production facility, computerized router machines maximize wood cuts and minimize waste. Any waste produced is used in the plant’s biomass furnace that heats the facility. Laser projectors create virtual jigs creating a pattern that ensures consistency and quality.
Certified Green labels on RVs ensure a “healthier and more sustainable product.” For more information on Wheelhaus park models visit www.wheelhaus.com or www.firesidejacksonhole.com.
