In hopes of making beautiful and sustainable homes more accessible to all, architects Phil Kaplan and Jess Thompson created BrightBuilt Home, prefab firm specializing in net-zero energy homes for the environmentally conscious. Base in Portland, Maine, firm offers nine customizable, modular options. These include a contemporary 420-square-foot ADU and a four-bedroom, 2 500-square-foot family home. BrightBuilt Home also creates fully custom homes, so long as all finishes comply with their low-VOC requirements and all fixtures are Energy-star rat. As the first certified Passive House components manufacturer in North America, Maine-base Ecocor designs and builds prefabricate houses that meet the highest energy-efficient building standards on the market today. Using Passive House Institute-certified panelized construction and triple-glazed windows, Ecocor promises energy savings of 80 to 90 % compared to traditional houses. They also promise reduced carbon footprint thanks to their low-waste prefabrication process and use of eco-friendly materials. Customers can choose between turnkey custom designs, envelope-only projects, or predesigned Homes from their Solksen by Ecocor line with 11 options of varying sizes. In 2017, Maine-base GO Logic launched GO Home, product line of Passive House Homes built with panelized prefabricated construction. Design with rural-modern aesthetic rooted in the New England vernacular, versatile GO Home line includes ten airtight options ranging from 600-square-foot, one-bedroom abodes to three-bedroom, 2 500-square-foot family residences. Dress in durable, low-maintenance materials inside and out, all GO Homes come with a heat-recovery ventilation system to provide a constant supply of filter, pre-warm air throughout the interior. In the wake of the devastation Tropical Storm Irene inflicted on Vermont mobile housing communities in 2011, coalition of groups, including Efficiency Vermont and University of Vermont, teamed up to form Modular Housing Innovation Projectan, an initiative that led to the birth of Vermod, Wilder-base company that designs and builds affordable zero-Energy Modular Homes. As partner of Efficiency Vermonts ZEM program, Vermod also serves low-income homeowners and specializes in mobile home replacement to show how building Modular can be an affordable and sustainable housing solution. After decades of building high-performance homes, New Hampshire-base Home builder Bensonwood launched Unity Homes in 2012 to provide a line of energy-efficient prefabricate homes that can achieve net-zero and Passive House standards. Energy-efficient Homes are built in Bensonwoods top-of-line facility for panelized construction that uses manufacturing efficiency and automation to drive down costs without compromising build quality and energy performance. Unity Homes offer five customizable predesigned layouts in a variety of styles. With over 1 000 complete Modular Homes to date, GO Modular is one of largest and oldest Modular Home builders in New England. Using proprietary prefabrication system, firm specializes in creating custom net zero-Energy homes with structural insulated panels for walls and roof. The firm has complete prefab traditional homes and log-style Modular builds, and can also produce Modular modern and multi-family residences.

Balance of Power

Alison and Eric Rector want out of their drafty old Maine farmhouse in Monroe. They do want to move far. They pick building plots on their own land, subdivide IT, and sell farmhouses, but they do want to reduce their energy footprint. So they approached GO Logic about Passive House, structure designed to meet strict, German-derive efficiency standard, cutting energy loss by 90 percent compared to conventional Home thanks to highly insulated shell, triple-glazed windows, and ventilation system that brings in fresh air without letting heat escape with stale air. Rectors Place is grid-tie, but 24 photovoltaic panels feed battery bank that can power lights, propane heater, water pump, and other critical systems during outages. Excess energy they generate feeds the grid; in 2017, they get a power-company rebate.
