Our vision is to build the best possible product; one that will last forever. We build it as exciting & custom as possible, our designs are practical, functional, simple, yet elegant. Practical is underlined by functional, in the material that we use for the environment (recycled products); energy saving, heat mass, durability, fire retardency, protection from and use of the elements. The layout of the house is for ease of movement through all phases of a lifetime. We have never built the same house twice. All our homes are beautiful, handmade, and not production or “factory” made. Green building concepts & Universal Design - user friendly for all ages and abilities.
