About Us

A Word From Our Founder

I grew up on a farm and realized it was not what I wanted to do. I love working with my hands, doing carpentry and I also have a love for architecture. I worked one summer for a local construction company as a designer, as well as helping out on site and said “I can do this!” In the Fall of 1984, I started this company because I am passionate about designing, building and renovating beautiful, efficient homes at a fair price. Over the years our services have expanded, but we have always remained true to our commitment to providing holistic design and quality craftsmanship.

I have worked with countless home and business owners over the years, and each time I still get deep satisfaction from seeing our designs come to life, knowing that they will be enjoyed by others for generations. The fact that they contribute to the health of the owners and the health of the planet adds to the success of our energy efficient solutions.

Our customers can count on us to provide custom solutions that meet their needs and their budget.

Sincerely,
