BrightBuilt Home Reviews


“We certainly have been appreciating our cozy little house this winter."

- Little Diamond Owner, Freeport, ME

"Today we live in the home of our dreams with no recurring energy costs.  The spacious and quiet interior feels custom made for our day-to-day lives, and the solar panels and other features outside bring constant inquiries from neighbors interested in the net zero concept."

- Family of Three, Southern NH

"Everybody who has visited the house remarks on how beautiful it is and how it’s exactly the sort of thing they’d always dreamed about having."

- Great Diamond Owner, Ithaca, NY

"We absolutely love the floor plan and exterior that BrightBuilt designed—rooms are just the right size and we were able to fit everything on our wish list (including a dog wash station!) into a relatively small footprint. Our third floor master suite is large and comfortable and private from the rest of the house. The design process was easy and fun and I felt like everything we articulated was really taken into consideration..."

- Marian and Alex S., Great Diamond in Falmouth, ME

"Our experience with BrightBuilt was fantastic from start to finish. The creativity and attention to detail throughout the design and building phases made the entire process a pure joy."

- Custom BrightBuilt Home, New Hampshire

"On sunny days it doesn’t matter how cold it is outside we’ll typically have a ceiling fan on in the main floor, and maybe even crack a window open midday. If it’s cloudy or at night we have the mini split set to the lowest speed...”

- Logan S. & Family, Great Diamond in Quakertown, PA

"We talked with several architects before discovering BrightBuilt, and are so glad to have found such visionary professionals to design an amazing house.  Only BrightBuilt could have delivered this for us and I am confident they will continue to be leaders in the net zero home space for many other families."

- Gig & Millie, Custom BrightBuilt Home in Hollis, NH

"BrightBuilt produced a wonderfully designed home for us. We have built six new homes and rebuilt one but feel this one has the most homey feel.  It is extremely quiet with all the insulation, interior temps stay remarkably consistent, the ventilation keeps it fresh. It feels really solid, the doors and windows do not jamb, rooms are all bright and cheery.  We are extremely pleased with our decision to go through this process."

- Tim & Kathryn T., Custom BrightBuilt in Falmouth, ME

"Just wanted to let you know that Little Diamond is performing beautifully.  She is comfortably cool in the summer as well as warm in the winters.  The super insulation and orientation to the sun have resulted in a comfortable and efficient structure.  The kilowatt credits generated this time of year run the heat pumps on those winters days that lack sunlight."

- David & Donna H, Little Diamond in MidCoast Maine

"The house has been working out great.  During the hottest days when it has been 90+ outside, inside the house remained a comfortable 70 and we have not used the cooling function on the heat pumps, only the drying function occasionally to keep the humidity down.  The R60 in the roof makes a huge difference. The heat just does not penetrate into the house."

- J & L, Little Diamond in MidCoast Maine

"We are loving the last couple of weeks.  It's been 24 degrees outside, and we're wondering how long we can hold off on using the heat!"

- Family of Four, Modified Cushing in North Andover, MA

“There’s not one design element we would’ve changed.  You guys did such a great job.”

- Family of Six, Modified Appledore in Gorham, ME
