Sustainability has been a central focus in recent years as many become mindful of global warming and strive to lead healthier lives. As people look for ways to incorporate words like efficient, resourceful, and sustainable in their home search criteria, old homes – especially those you’ll find in Maine – don’t meet most of their requirements.

Sustainable Homes in Maine

In Douglas Ridge, a development of new homes in Brunswick, Maine, those requirements are fulfilled and even exceed what it means to live a healthy life at home. In new construction, you might start to wonder what materials are used and how they affect the environment. In Douglas Ridge, all that matters, but so does the process of building the home.

In typical construction, materials not used are wasted – drywall, asphalt shingles, bricks, clay tiles, wood, and other items end up in landfills. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), that was more than 75% in 2018. That number may be less now with better build processes and solutions in place.
