We had the unique experience of the customer hiring the builder before the architect. I, as the builder, had the unique opportunity to help the homeowner hire an architect. This approach helped solidify a team committed from the start to design and build to the tight budget we were given.

Throughout the project, we focused on using construction materials and techniques that were builder friendly with off the shelf materials from the local lumberyard. The only materials not sourced locally were the windows, some of the window tapes, and the Zehnder ERV.
