A Long Island builder has announced he is constructing a home using only materials made in the United States.

The 2,000-square-foot ranch in the 17-home Vistas at East Moriches development is called the Americana, and all its components — from its foundation and roof to nails — were made in this country, according to the builder, Landmark Properties of Suffolk in Rocky Point. In addition, all the contractors were based on Long Island. A groundbreaking was held June 28, and the home is expected to be complete by late November.

The home already has a buyer, who paid $500,000 before the builder announced its decision to build it entirely from American-made materials, according to Landmark. The builder plans to construct 18 homes in Miller Place, all from American-made materials.

The developer is “100 percent committed to the economic recovery of our country,” Landmark owner Mark Baisch said in a statement.
