Unity client Matt Ferrell hosts a YouTube channel called “Undecided with Matt Ferrell” that has over one million subscribers. Matt is creating a series of videos about the design/build process for his new home. The first video focuses on the options Matt explores for building his home, the second video is about the panel prefabrication process, and the third shows the assembly of the shell on site. Here’s how Matt sums up the process: “After seeing this in person, my main thought was, why aren’t we doing this everywhere?”

Tedd Benson

“We have the potential to totally change the paradigm of home building. It’s possible to build homes that use no fossil-fuels, and are more affordable. To build homes in several months that are around for centuries. To build homes that easily evolve as your life unfolds. We can build homes that do not have the defects that so many new homes do—homes that actually change the quality of your life. And we can do it in a way that is more predictable and less stressful… for ALL of us.”

— TEDD BENSON, Founder

In Their Own Words

Inspired by the Team

I went to work for Unity inspired by the company’s mission. I continue working here inspired by the people. Making high performance homes available to a broader market isn’t easy, but if any team can crack that nut, it’s this one.

That's the "Why" of Unity Homes

We’ve come to understand a simple point: our clients—like everyone who decides to build—want to create a place that will improve the quality of their lives, period. That’s the “why” of Unity homes.

Kathy Dana
Pleased and Impressed

During the life of the design-build process, we were extremely pleased with the level of knowledge and expertise, quality of craftsmanship, attention to detail, and the customer service focus demonstrated by the many trades people involved. We were also extremely impressed with the consistent high quality of the materials and products used in the construction of our home.

I'm So Happy I Found Unity

Unity was wonderful to deal with. Every time there was an issue, Unity stepped up and took responsibility. When the issues were local, Unity was patient and helpful in resolving them. I’m so happy I found Unity!

We Love our House

…and we love looking out at the golden sunsets and gazing up at the exposed timber beams

Bryant and Ruth,
Carpentry Magicians

The Unity carpenters who worked on finishing the house were magicians – they really were! Whenever an issue came up, they were always able to find creative solutions.

The Future of Homebuilding

With labor shortages in the building industry, rising construction costs and the need to build ‘greener’ homes, we must find ways to enhance productivity, integrate energy-efficiency and reduce timelines to build. Unity is doing just that.”

Alexis,
On Time and On Budget

It was a pleasure working with Unity and New School Builders to build our new home.  We found their staff to be very responsive and the quality of materials and workmanship to be top notch.  We’ve been through many building projects and this was by far the smoothest. We ended up with a great, energy efficient home that was on time and on budget

Cindy M,
Running on Sunshine

Our home is working well for my husband and me, for our animals and for the planet!

Amy,
A Retreat and a Refuge

Our intention was to create a space on this beautiful piece of land with a real sense of peace for ourselves and our friends and family. We wanted a retreat and a refuge, in an energy efficient home where we could age in place in beautiful surrounding. Unity helped us create exactly that.

Donna and Catherine,
Ease of Process and Positive Attitudes

It wasn’t just the ease of the process that impressed us – it was everyone’s attitude as well. We can honestly say that we had a really good time with the designing and building of our new home – and who says that?!

Sarah,

We absolutely love our home and can’t think of one thing we’d want to do differently.

It’s energy efficient. It lives really well. I love the look. It feels like I’m getting ‘away’ every time I come home.

Very Impressive

Everything from the screenshot meetings to the itemized pricing is very impressive. I don’t consider myself the most visual or technically minded client, but you make it very easy. Having gone through this process, I’m not sure why anyone would want to build a house any other way!

Lisa B, Unity Homeowner
I Could Not Be More Pleased

I could not be more pleased with the house and the awesome customer service. You guys made the process thoroughly satisfying and enjoyable – not something you typically hear about when building homes.

Shaping The Industry

I enjoy working on homes knowing the impact that energy efficiency and sustainability have on the environment, comfort, health, and wellness. We are shaping the industry to hopefully demand better materials and processes to get to higher quality homes.

It Feels Beautiful

I could say that it is comfortable, that it is quiet, that it feels calm, peaceful, secure, and all that would be true; but it would miss the point. It is the feeling that I don’t want to go anywhere else, I don’t want to be anywhere else – it feels beautiful.
