We specialize in building high performance, healthy homes and remodeling existing homes to improve building performance and comfort. We have the experience to take on any home project, from new construction to refurbish, retrofit to new install, from large to small.


Building is what we know. Whether you’re working on a whole home remodel, new kitchen, bathroom upgrade, or new custom home, we’ve got the expertise, tools, and team to get your project done. Our specialties include high-performance homes and detailing for longevity of your structure. We also focus on low-carbon solutions, including the use of natural insulation materials like straw bales, cellulose, and hemp. Using this focused expertise in traditional methods, married with modern science, our buildings and remodeling projects are naturally healthy and non-toxic.


Whether you are in the planning stages of a big project, or need information about how to take on a particular task or advice on detailing a high performance home, get in touch! We are happy to offer our expertise in natural materials, high performance building design, and other sustainable construction techniques.


Let us design your remodel or new home. Our integrated and refined processes of working with you and other experts will result in a streamlined build with a complete set of specifications that will meet your budget. Whether it’s a brand new space or a renovation, we want your home or office to be designed around your patterns and be built to last for a long time to come.


We are happy to work with schools, internship programs, conferences, or other groups to teach our methods and share our knowledge.
