Sustainable Homes are the Future (and Present)

The movement towards being more eco-friendly in every day life is more than just a trend. It’s becoming a new way of life.

Consumers everywhere — whether they are shopping for clothes, cars, or food — are seeking out sustainable options.

The home industry is also seeing a dramatic shift in how their homes are being made as well.

In 2019, 22% of home builders in the U.S. were dedicated to building green homes. By 2022, that number is expected to grow to over 30% — and that figure is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

Homeowners are becoming more conscious of their home’s environmental impact and this way of thinking is here to stay.

Secluded, Lakefront Properties

The Peninsula at Lake O’Dowd offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to build an architecturally stunning, yet high performing energy-efficient home.

Not far from Prior Lake, this lakefront community is located on a secluded, wooded peninsula in Shakopee, Minnesota. With fourteen generous sized homesites — each featuring between 110 and 837 feet of shoreline and one to three acres of wooded privacy — this is the perfect place to build your forever home.

But these properties won’t be available forever. To learn more, visit the Peninsula at Lake O’Dowd’s homepage  and reach out to us today to get started!

Modern + Sustainable Features

As you can tell, we’re passionate about incorporating sustainable materials and features into our homes. But, we also want to make sure that your home incorporates the style and look that you desire.

We work with many high-quality, talented suppliers who craft gorgeous, modern materials and furnishings that are not only eco-friendly, but also look amazing.

Underneath it all, you can include these high performing features in your home: continuous exterior insulation, advanced heating and cooling system designs, passive solar designs, photovoltaic (PV) solar panels, and potential geothermal heating and cooling systems.

By working with Sustainable 9, you can expect an architecturally stunning, yet high performing energy-efficient home.

Our Tried and True Process

We know that the home-building process can seem daunting. But here at Sustainable 9, we’ve created an environment and culture that prides itself on customer service and making sure you feel heard during the entire building process.

From the initial consultation phase — where we’ll get to know you and your family, what it is you’re looking for in a new home, and the goals you wish to accomplish — to when the final nail is hammered in, you’ll be with us every step of the way to ensure that what you want is what you get.

The home-building process should be just as fun as the end result. That’s our philosophy.
