Our Sustainability Mission

For a home to be sustainable, it must first be durable. Timeless design and skilled craftsmanship combine to give a house sturdiness and beauty that will last for generations.

Building science is an ever-changing field. We continually work to stay conversant with new technologies and best practices in sustainable building. Past projects have included features such as solar photovoltaic electricity, solar thermal hot water, rainwater catchment for use in-home, SIPS construction, FSC certified lumber, advanced framing, plumbing recirculation systems, hydronic radiant heat, and high performing insulation systems.

In addition to durability and efficiency, our mission is to make a contribution toward sustainable community building. We think of ourselves as helping to improve close-in neighborhoods one house at a time, promoting short commutes, alternative transportation, and neighborhood cohesion.
