Unity precision engineered homes are the culmination of architectural principals from ancient Rome to modern Sweden, Germany, Amsterdam, North America and other areas of the world. They take the best practice to create sustainable, healthy, green homes.
Many of the things that make Unity homes so green has to do with the creation process. Advanced CNC (computer numerical control) machinery ensures that we use the minimum amount of wood to make the maximum amount of house. Fabricating up to 60% of the home in our shop means that we can maintain tight quality controls regardless of site conditions. OpenBuilt® technology creates a home that adapts to the people who live there—saving time and money as they adapt to changes in lifestyle and technology…all in a house designed to last hundreds of years.

The Xyla is designed so you can “live large” in a small, extremely energy-efficient one-story space. Connectors, laundry rooms, garages, art studios, and other separate rooms can be added to expand this platform to fit your needs.Our lowest-cost platform, Xyla homes typically range from 1,100 to 1,600 square feet, and have 2-3 bedrooms and 1-2 baths. Built low to the ground, they combine natural light with deep overhangs for additional shade in the summer.
When our first Xyla was built across the river in Vermont, it was tested by Efficiency Vermont and received a Home Energy Rating System (HERS) score of 44, and a 5-Star-Plus Certification for excellence in energy efficiency. That’s 86% more efficient than the average American home. In terms of air infiltration, it tested at .51 ACH50, which is almost 20% better than the stringent Passive House standard.
An ideal blend of quality craftsmanship, outstanding design and the peaceful tranquility of MidCoast Maine, all converge into a beautiful coexistence at The Glades. This distinctive neighborhood features 14 custom homes sited on 22 acres with a stream meandering through the bucolic setting.
Each home is carefully sited on a lightly wooded parcel of approximately an acre that blends into the natural surroundings.
