we know you are the kind of person who wants to reduce your environmental impact, live more sustainably and show others what is possible when building or renovating your home.
In order to do that you need to feel secure that the money and time you are investing and the decisions you are making will have the impact you are expecting.
The problem is that everyone markets their products and services as green and sustainable these days. Justifiably it can be really, really confusing, leading most people to not know where or how to even begin the process.
We believe that sustainable living is possible for everyone.
All homes should be beautiful, functional, comfortable and secure.
We understand it can seem daunting as it is a big undertaking.
That is why we work with a small number of individual clients to create a custom design that is all about you and your lifestyle.
But it doesn't end there.
You have to have the confidence that your new home will meet your expectations and perform as it is intended. That is why we test and asses our designs throughout the process.
There is no guessing.
