Built for Today and Tomorrow

Ridgewood was designed with awareness for minimizing short- and long-term environmental impact. The site plan includes nearly 70 acres of conservation land transferred to the Falmouth Land Trust. The homes are arranged in small neighborhoods that share open space and minimize the pavement required for each drive.

Green from the Beginning

From the start, we’ve strived to minimize impact:

  • Reusing and processing earth and fill materials onsite
  • Setting aside the majority of acreage as conservation land with walking trails
  • Situating homes in small neighborhood clusters

Standard Green Features

Every home is designed and built with a baseline of features that focus on energy efficiency, responsible use of resources, and indoor air quality:

  • Andersen Low-E insulating windows
  • ENERGY STAR appliances
  • Water-conserving fixtures
  • High-efficiency gas or oil boilers
  • Sherwin Williams low-VOC paints
  • R-49 ceiling insulation and R-21 wall insulation with vapor barrier reduce energy loss and heating costs
  • Local FSC-certified lumber
  • Fiber-cement siding system utilizing recycled and natural, non-toxic materials

Greener Still

For homeowners seeking an even more eco-friendly and healthy home, our builder will work with you to incorporate additional features and technologies:

  • Geothermal heating and cooling to maximize comfort while minimizing energy costs and environmental impact
  • Super-tight building envelope with air exchange
  • Solar-thermal hot water
  • LED lighting
