High-performance Homes for all Life-stages
  • Having the expertise and experience in building energy-saving, high-performance homes, I like to work with the whole-house design… Whenever possible, I recommend a north or south-face orientation to minimize solar heat gain – especially important in our Houston Bay Area. I protect existing trees during all phases of construction, not only to protect natural beauty and habitat, but also for the energy saving shade they are likely to provide during the warmest months.
  • I build to accommodate all ages at all life-stages, providing for example, light bulbs and return air filters that do not require a ladder, flat threshold transitions, and wider door openings.
