To accomplish the goals of the project, Meritage had to look beyond traditional building techniques. And, what it found is something that will be part of the company’s future programming.

    Meritage also uses spay in foam insulation that is way better than fiber glass batts and other methods. They used to have Solar hot water and PV options but the Utilities have killed that option. Too bad it’s how every home should be built.
