We believe that every building should produce as much energy as it uses.

To be truly affordable, you can't be saddled with high energy bills. We deliver buildings that are not only affordable when you move in, but for years to come.

Home: Welcome



We have been designing and constructing buildings for the past 30 years. During that time, we've come to realize that much of the complexity around modern construction is self-inflicted. The fundamentals haven't changed. The building science hasn't changed. What has changed is a mandate to build better.

Today's building process requires expertise on the building code, energy codes and climate impacts of every decision made. We focus on climate-friendly, budget-driven projects designed to outperform most modern buildings. We provide a deep level of understanding of not only how buildings are constructed, but also how they use energy.



Custom designs for you
(and the planet) to thrive

With over 30 years of design/build experience, we know how to turn your vision into a reality that you can afford. Achieving net zero energy is not an afterthought - it's what we expect out of all of our buildings.


Putting it all together

There are lots of qualified general contractors in the area. What sets us apart is our deep background in retrofits and energy performance. We have been building and fixing homes and commercial spaces in the Roaring Fork Valley for over 30 years. Let us build your next project.​


In-house BPI, HERS and CEM certifications

Let us consult with you on your next project, whether it's general construction advising, energy code compliance or performing HERS Ratings and blower door testing. Our goal is to find ways to increase energy performance while balancing costs.

Here's what our customers have to say about us

Working with Marty and Rich has been all we could ask for in building our home. They have truly supported us in finding and designing the right home for our budget and lifestyle, while staying in alignment with our sustainability values. It is a breath of fresh air to work with people we trust and know have our best interests in mind. Thank you for every step of the way!

I couldn’t be happier with the home that Marty designed and built for us in Glenwood Springs, CO - it exceeded my expectations. The house incorporates passive and active solar, and is one of the most energy-efficient homes in Glenwood Springs.  Best of all, the design enhanced the views from the windows and decks, and it is just so comfortable to live in!
Marty was great to work with throughout the entire project, design, budgeting…right down to the final punch list.  I highly recommend him as a designer and builder for your dream home.
