Our "Green Made Easy" promise.

No matter what level of Green you want for your family, Nationwide Homes has the right answer for you.

Green Guage

HiPerformance Clarity

Nationwide takes the confusion out of Green home building.

Green is the buzzword these days, but as a consumer do you feel confident or confused when talking about Green building programs?

If you feel confused you're not alone!

There are over 50 different local and state Green building organizations with various definitions and standards that create tremendous confusion in the marketplace. Green is made more confusing by companies that rely on "window dressing" marketing that creates the illusion of substance rather than delivering true benefits.

It's no wonder home buyers are confused.

At Nationwide Homes, we have a Green building process we call "Green Made Easy". We put substance, not fluff, into our Green offerings. We have years of experience in high performance building and we will help you through the vast and sometimes confusing amount of information about Green home building.

HiPerformance Standard

Green is the standard at Nationwide.

  • Nationwide Green is not an expensive option, but included in every home we build
  • Nationwide is the original NAHB Bronze and Energy Star Ready modular builder

Simply, every home we build is Green. It is not an option and importantly it doesn't come at a premium price. Green starts with the fundamentals of our System Plus Construction. No matter what rating system is used (NAHB/National Association of Home Builders or LEED/Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), Green points are awarded for our basic construction processes that are simply not available in a site-built home. Green points are awarded for better use of materials, healthier products, healthier applications and minimized site disturbance to name just a few.

All Nationwide homes are built standard to meet NAHB's Bronze certification and the Energy Star Certified program requirements*.

HiPerformance Savings

Nationwide Green homes will save you money.

It's a fact.

  • Green homes have lower utility costs, healthier air quality and higher resale value than site-built homes
  • State, Federal and Regional tax credits are available to encourage the consumer to buy Green certified homes
  • Many utility companies offer discounts or rebates for building Green

Not only are Green homeowners using less energy, they are often paying less per unit of energy used! These Green credits vary by region and change frequently. At Nationwide Homes, we review these changes frequently to help you stay informed. We are your Green expert.

HiPerformance Choices

Nationwide Green goes from light Green to dark Green.

Nationwide has the resources to help you choose your level of Green-from light Green (Bronze) to the darkest shade of Green (Gold). We also have the experience to meet the needs of customers who want Green options that include solar, geo-thermal and more. A Green project must include a well rounded approach in seven areas.

Because "Custom" is our middle name, our experts can help you determine the level of Green that meets your specific needs. No matter what choices you make for your Green home, Nationwide has the practical and sustainable answer.

GREEN DEFINED.

What Customers are Saying About Our Custom Homes

"On Sunday, January 4th, Steve and I lost our home and all its contents to a chimney fire. A month later, after going through all the roller coaster emotions related to the disaster, we found ourselves in a car with our friends, Valery and Jeff. They were taking us to Williamsburg Square in Frazeysburg, Ohio to look at factory crafted houses. Truly, Steve and I were not too sure about nontraditional stick built houses, but we tried to be open minded.

After a tour of the onsite houses, agent Scott Richards showed us the rendition of a Nationwide Custom house, the Haywood II. Steve and I looked at each other and said “we could live in this one”, as we were so impressed with it.

A few weeks later, we met with Mark Kelly at the Nationwide Design Center in Jeffersonville, Ohio. Mark spent hours showing us the many features and choices available to us from the outside siding to the inside door knobs. He encouraged us to travel to Martinsville, VA to see the factory and our new house.

On June 5th, we met with Tommy Rakes who guided us through the Virginia factory; then we saw our house. We were so impressed with both!!

The big day finally arrived; June 18th, our house was set on our basement foundation and on August 20th, we slept in our beautiful new Nationwide “home”.

It was an amazing experience, thanks Williamsburg Square and Nationwide Custom Homes for building our house, while we healed emotionally and rebuilt our “home”. "
