Sustainable Green Homes

Your Maine Guide to Eco Friendly Living

Green Living

Green living is more than a trend, especially here in Maine. We are fortunate to live in a state with bountiful natural beauty and for many, choosing to live in a green home is another way to help preserve our planet. Moving forward with a sustainable home is a personal choice, whether it be for monetary or ethical reasons.

What to Expect

While the price tag of an eco-friendly home can be daunting, it is important to note that most sustainable homes are new builds which will generally be more expensive than an established house. Further, these green homes tend to run 12% - 20% more expensive than standard new builds built to minimum code. But this percent increase represents a higher return on investment that you’re buying into.

Highlighted below are benefits associated with sustainable homes that may help alleviate the initial cost-shock.
