Modular Zero Home

Finally a cheaper green home! Starting at just $205,000, Maine leading modular builder, Keiser Homes, and Maine's own award-winning architecture firm, Kaplan Thompson Architects have teamed up to bring you a well-designed, attractive, green home Net Zero series known as the "Modular Zero Collection."

Net Zero homes combine state-of-the-art, energy-efficient construction and appliances with commercially available renewable energy systems, such as solar water heating and solar electricity. The combination results in a home that produces its own energy-as much or more than it needs. Even though the home might be connected to a utility grid, it has net zero energy consumption from the utility provider.

  • Zero Energy Homes optimize and include the following design features:
    • Climate-specific design
    • Passive solar heating and cooling
    • Energy-efficient construction
    • Energy-efficient appliances and lighting
    • Solar water heating system
    • Small solar electric system
  • Best of all is knowing that you have invested in a home that:
    • Hedges against future fuel costs
    • More durable, less equipment to break
    • More comfortable and temperate
    • Healthier for you and your family; no allergens, toxins or VOC’s
    • Reduced monthly utility costs
    • Ready for future technologies as prices for solar come down
  • As low as $860 a month – including your utility costs!
  • Equivalent to $153/sf! (Based on 20 year occupancy)
  • *Approximate price for complete home, without land, based on normal site conditions and standard specifications.

Energy Efficiency Features

  • Super-insulated construction (R-40 walls and R-60 roof)
  • Photovoltaic solar panels
  • Solar hot water (evacuated panels)
  • High-efficiency hydronic heating (Heat Pump)
  • Energy-efficient triple glazed windows
  • Airtight Construction

Water Conservation Features

  • Low-flow showerheads and faucets
  • Sustainably Produced and Durable Materials
  • FSC certified wood products
  • Recycled-content resilient flooring
  • 50-year siding
  • 40-year, recyclable metal roof
  • Locally manufactured materials

Health Indoor Environmental Features

  • Low VOC paints, adhesives and sealants
  • Nontoxic finishes on flooring and cabinetry
  • Formaldehyde-free insulation
  • Formaldehyde-free cabinets
  • Efficient ventilation

Passive Design Elements

Overhanging eaves and awnings sized to reject high-angle summer sun and receive low-angle winter sun.

Windows sized and placed for maximum cross ventilation as well as “thermo-siphoning,” the exhaustion of high hot air and intake of low cool air.

Strategically located windows reduce reliance on electric lighting.
