Each new building we build is more environmentally sound than earlier buildings, both by reducing energy requirements and making maximum use of renewable energy sources.

In our most recently constructed large residence we incorporated passive building orientation and heating, thermal mass, superinsulation, thermal curtains & shutters, maximum natural lighting, and other proven superefficiency techniques. We also used cellulose (recycled) insulation, natural wood siding, and high performance windows.
