  • Selecting a Building Lot
  • Working with a Designer, Architect, or Draftsman
  • Selecting Construction Materials
  • Construction Permit Applications (County or City)
  • Cost Quotes
  • Construction Contract

To provide prospective clients with insight into the process of constructing a high-performance home, a periodic series of postings (see links below) will provide a case-history example using photos and descriptive text of the home as it comes out of the ground and progresses through completion.
