Site Orientation

By utilizing the correct site orientation for your project allows us to take advantage of passive solar techniques and the buffering of north/west elevations from heavy weather conditions. Being able to harness the winter sun while blocking the summer sun is an available method if the site is used to its fullest potential.

Square Foot Usage

Homes in the past have become far too large. By optimizing square footage use you are creating a much more energy-efficient and sustainable home without sacrificing comforts. Bigger is not always better. See Sarah Susanka’s books, ‘The Not-So-Big House’ and ‘Home by Design’ for more information.

3D Architectural Design

We utilize powerful 3-d rendering tools like Sketch-Up to provide clients with the element of detail not found in traditional architectural drawings. Before final drawings are completed, clients can see a virtual model of their dream home.
