New World Home was created to transform the housing industry and we believe we are doing that one home at a time. Watch a recap of the Country Living 2010 House of the Year from Factory to Finish with one of the founders of New World Home. The Country Living Green Modular Home Design Center will be opening in September 2010. Homeowners will now have the opportunity to build a New World Home within the world class Crystal Springs Resort in Hardyston, NJ, a growing community that’s dedicated to the conservation of the natural environment.

HARDYSTON, NJ — New Jersey developer Andy Mulvihill says this is “the greenest house in New Jersey.” Read more in the New Jersey Herald:

The average Manhattan tourist might bring home an “I love NY” shirt or a clever pair of sunglasses. But for the developers of Crystal Springs Resort in Hardyston, their last trip to the Big Apple brought an entire house.

The New World Homea modular “green” home built in a factory — spent two weeks on display in Battery Park, impressing visitors such as Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

“I’m happy to applaud New World Home for its strides in promoting sustainable and affordable housing,” Bloomberg wrote in an official statement.

Now, the home has been rebuilt, piece by piece, in the Crystal Springs development in Hardyston.

The New York Daily News visits the Country Living 2010 House of the Year:

Located on the water’s edge at the World Financial Center in the outdoor plaza at 220 Vesey St., the Country Living House of the Year comes to New York City for the first time in its 20 years. Showing off modular, green housebuilding from Jersey City-based New World Home, the house proves that eco-friendly, LEED homes come easy (100 days from order to delivery) and can combine traditional lines with modern technologies.

This home uses no alternative energy sources such as solar panels but can still save thousands of dollars per year in electricity and heating costs and use 60% of the energy of a code-built house. Of course, the house is for sale. In a partnership between forward-thinking Country Living and New World, the magazine will offer a range of homes. This one, aptly called the Hudson, costs $575,000 and $375,000 in simplest form.


New World Home was featured in today’s New York Times Home Section announcing the Country Living 2010 House of the Year and its scheduled build at the World Financial Center in NYC.  This exciting event will be hosted in conjunction with our partners, Country Living Magazine, Hearst Media and Brookfield Properties.

The New York Post writes about New World Home’s contribution to New York’s growing list of LEED buildings:

In the seven years since Battery Park City’s Solaire building became New York’s first LEED-rated residential development, eco-conscious construction has gone from being rare to almost run-of-the-mill. As of September, New York boasted 46 LEED-certified buildings, and another 550 future developments were planning to apply for LEED status.

New World has turned out three LEED platinum-rated homes — all of them achieving that distinction without using any alternative energy sources such as geothermal or solar.

“There’s a lot of building science within the houses that most homebuilders don’t go into,” New World Home co-founder Mark Jupiter says. By paying close attention to details like framing technique and window and eave placement, the company has been able to turn out homes more than twice as energy-efficient as typical models.

Mark Jupiter explains his decision to build houses modularly like this: “What airplane would you rather fly in? One built in someone’s backyard, or one built in the Boeing factory?”

This farmhouse style home is inspired by Benjamin Franklin. Franklin argued for “public rights” and against pollution in his early years in Philadelphia, and later encouraged various commissions to deal with environmental and public health problems in the city. When he died in 1790, Franklin’s will included money to be spent on a new fresh water supply system for the city that would improve public health.

This 2 floor home includes 4 bedrooms (5 with office), 3 and a half bathrooms and a total of 2442 square feet of living space. For more details on the Franklin and our other home designs, please click here.


Jetson Green reports that New World Home recently took LEED platinum for another traditional home in Georgia. An excerpt:

This 2,869 square-foot, three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom home was built for efficiency first, skipping costly renewable energy sources, such as solar panels, wind turbines, and geothermal systems.

Green features include an Energy Star metal roof, bamboo floors, efficient Pella doors and windows, an energy recovery ventilation system, Wattstopper lighting controls, no-VOC Benjamin Moore Aura paints, Kohler fixtures, Caroma dual-flush toilets, Icynene insulation, FSC certified lumber framing, Hardie ColorPlus siding, PEX tubing, and a Takagi tankless water heater.

There’s also drought tolerant, low-maintenance landscaping, permeable paving, and a rainwater harvesting system. In an email, New World Home told Jetson Green the home is located in one of the top school districts in the area.


New World Home was recently awarded LEED® for Homes Platinum, NAHB Gold and EarthCraft Gold certification for our Chadwick design in Atlanta, GA. Once again, these certifications were achieved without the need for any costly renewable energy sources (solar panels, wind turbines or geothermal systems).  This home also won the 2010 Energy Value Housing Award (EVHA) in the Moderate Climate, Factory-Built category. The EVHA program is organized by the National Association of Home Builders and the award was presented to the company founders at the recent International Builders Show in Las Vegas.

These certifications add to a string of achievements for New World Home projects. Additionally, the company’s first LEED Platinum certified house recently won the EarthCraft Project of the Year Award – 2009 for single family construction.  The prestigious EarthCraft award recognizes accomplishments in green building across the Southeastern United States.


The origins of the Hudson River Valley architecture are deeply routed in European traditions and designs. The cottage style, wrap around porch, scale, accents, thoughtful details and functional use of space incorporated into this home were inspired by the heritage and vernacular of the Hudson Valley.

This 2 floor cottage includes 2 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths and an 1100 square foot wrap around porch. For more detailed information on the Country Living Collection, and to customize your own design, please click here.
