Design/Build or Bring Your Plans
Timber Frame and High Performance Home Builder
We build homes for discerning clients who understand and appreciate the value in utilizing the latest in building science methods and materials to create homes with excellent structual integrity, superior energy efficiency and reduced environmental impact.
We specialize in turnkey construction of custom, energy efficient, high performance homes and timber frame homes.
We handle every detail of your home starting with consultation, building site selection, floor planning, plans and specs, to grading and final interior details.
Some of these we perform ourselves and some we trust to other professionals that we trust and have worked with through the years.

When we begin the process of working with a client to build or design/build their home, we focus first on the design and construction of the building envelope - foundation, walls, roof and then address the interior efficiency and comfort aspects. The envelope-first focus dramatically reduces the energy required to heat and cool a high performance home and also ensures the structural integrity is not compromised.
