Using natural building techniques, our knowledge of conventional building, as well as local and recycled materials we build things that will blow your mind! We like to call this approach “practical sustainability”:
bridging the gap between conventional and natural building.


Knowledge is key. The importance of having someone on your side that knows the ins and outs of what you are trying to achieve can not be understated. Let our expertise help guide you through your project.



Committed to the value of sustainability, we prioritize and implement the highest performance-based energy standards in the industry. We have extensive experience with alternative construction systems including straw bale, renewable energy systems, non-toxic and recycled materials.
