Guiding Principles


In this age of soaring fuel costs, energy independence is not just about being an environmentalist anymore. It just makes good sense.  With net-zero pricing rolled into our baselines, we can give you a good sense of what to expect when looking at the cost of alternate energy. If it’s just not possible for you to swing the solar panels now, all of our homes are ready-and-able to tie-in with a photovoltaic grid when the time is right.


BrightBuilt Home offers a line of architect-designed, high-performance homes that are priced to offer substantial savings off the lifetime cost of a typical home and can be delivered in less time.  Sustainable is now attainable – for everyone.  This is the BrightBuilt Home mission.


What exactly do we mean by “beauty”?  Well, it has to do with a measured approach, carefully coordinated with the builder’s needs and today’s clients’ desires.  To elegantly balance thoughtful spaces, accessible materials, and evocative details into a coherent and balanced whole is, to us, beautiful.


It’s simple: homes that last a long time make less of an impact and, ultimately, cost less to own and operate.  A well-built structure, carefully assembled, conscientiously sealed, protected, and insulated, is how BrightBuilt Home does it.


Remember that drafty house that you grew up in?  Well, you finally have the opportunity to forget those drafts, and get used to a consistently comfortable home that doesn’t chill you when you look out the window in the middle of winter.  Likewise, with thoughtful solar orientation and the implementation of shading, your home will be equally wonderful on those hot summer days.


On so many levels, our homes are secure.  They are financially secure, as they are not at the mercy of fluctuating, ever-inflating fuel costs.  They are fiscally secure, as their durable construction lends itself to longer-lasting, time-tested components and less wear-and-tear.  They are physically secure, as their firm foundations and stout walls provide a safe, pleasant, and snug haven for you and your family. We are confident that you will feel that reassuring – and lasting – sense of security in your comfortable, affordable, solid, dependable BrightBuilt Home.


If your body is a temple, your home should be its sanctuary.  We strive to create the healthiest home possible, by providing for year-round fresh-air circulation, and minimization of toxins in the air. All BrightBuilt Home specifications require that paints, flooring, and finishes comply with green Low-VOC standards.


Every BrightBuilt Home is high performance. Therefore, every BrightBuilt Home must be carefully placed within its site to optimize solar orientation, views, glazed openings, shading, visibility, and more! Every home is analyzed within its proposed site, and metrics are adjusted until the optimal performance can be attained.
