Why Green Home-Building is Surprisingly Affordable   

Here’s a quick question for you: When you think “green home-building,” do you think “great for the environmentnot so great for my wallet!  

If you do, you’re like a lot of folks. But we have great news for you: Thanks to many technological breakthroughs, today’s green home building can actually be AMAZINGLY affordable. In fact, in the long-term, it generally is far MORE affordable than conventional home building. 

Why is this true?  

Because today’s best green home building—which Maine Source Homes passionately supports and provides—is an absolute revolution in earth-friendly advances. Today’s best “green” practices use the very latest in energy-efficient technology as they dramatically reduce construction waste, reduce water usage, and build homes that are continually less expensive to maintain. 


Your “Maine Source” for Green Home Building 


A great way to think of green home building is to think "environmentally responsible building." This process offers you 3 enormously important benefits. They are: 


  • Buildings and infrastructure that maximize the efficient use of resources; 

  • The use of resources that holistically reduce harmful effects on the environment; 

  • The use of materials that actually provide a healthier home environment for you and your loved ones. 


Here at Maine Source Homes, we bring a passion for environmentally-friendly energy efficiency to every home we build. That’s one reason why we specialize in modular homes. Modular is—quite simply—the smartest, greenest future in home construction.
