Sustainable Living Systems™ is the most efficient and progressive homebuilder in today’s eco-friendly real estate market.

As Millennials move into the first phase of home ownership, and Baby Boomers move into the final phase, each group is smarter than ever about affordable structures that will satisfy their diverse needs while honoring the environment.


We “build a better box” for the homeowner who wants to build with efficiency, comfort, and reap energy cost savings. These homes are also durable and reduce the carbon footprint of each owner. From design and construction to financing, Sustainable Living Systems™ homes are built with affordability, reliability, and the conservation of natural resources in mind. Each component of a Sustainable Living Systems™ home is designed to work in harmony

with the others.


Your savings begin with company’s patent-pending EDGE™ track and panel system.  The panels are made of structural steel and extruded polystyrene that are rough in ready (pre-wired and pre-plumbed) for quick and easy framing.  The EDGE™ panels not only exceed the National Green Building Standard’s requirements but also qualify for Energy Star Ratings that are the highest assessment available by the Homer Energy Rating Systems (HERS).


The savings continue with our temperature control feature.  In the Southern states, builders allocate 1 ton of air conditioning for every 450 to 700 square feet.  The Sustainable Living Systems™ home only requires 1 ton of air conditioning for up to 1,250 square feet.


Also, we make daily strides in the efficient installation of solar panels and photo-catalytic coatings that integrate with our water heaters and air conditioning units.  The savings continue with our installation of appliances with the highest Energy Star ratings.


Together, these features add up to 70% energy reduction, providing the homeowner with cost savings of approximately $300 per month or $3,600 per year.


The Sustainable Living Systems™ home is Emerald Level Certified by the National Green Building Standard.

This preeminent residential green building rating system has four certification levels: bronze, silver, gold, and emerald.  It outlines best practices for green builders, remodelers, and developers to plan their projects.


We will build your home to fit your neighborhood. Sustainable Living Systems™ homes are unique in the availability of style and design. Unlike some green builders using ultra-modern exteriors, your home can seamlessly integrate with the style and architecture of your area.


Even with the environment in mind, your home will be the fortress against the elements you need.  Sustainable Living Systems™ homes are terminate-proof, mold resistant, quiet, and cost less to maintain.


Sustainable Living Systems™ homes circumvent some of the most time-consuming and expensive aspects of home construction with the EDGE™ panels system.  Homeowners enjoy quiet environments and experience energy savings all within a home designed to their preference.



Changing your coefficient of consumption without changing your lifestyle

Sustainable Living Systems™ is a new concept in home building. Each component of a Sustainable Living Systems™ home is designed to support energy efficiency, comfort and durability. From design to construction to financing, Sustainable Living Systems™ homes are built with affordability and reliability in mind.

The first Sustainable Living Systems™ home has already been pre-certified at the highest level of energy-efficiency by the National Green Build Standard, the preeminent source for green home certification in the US. Few homes have achieved this certification level.
