Green Construction Services


Our experianced and talented Green Construction Crew moving treestakes great care to use sustainable materials, techniques and technology for every step of the process, insuring the integrity of the process and the quality of the results. They are all part of the team that keeps your project on purpose, on track, on budget and on time.

Clearing and Excavating

Before we clear a building site, we accurately stake out building and utility locations and if need be modify those locations to make best use of the environmental qualities of the site.

When we clear a lot, we do not just remove the trees and send them to a landfill or quarry for burning. We will selectively remove trees as needed, and all full sized trees removed will be used for saw logs. Some can used for rough framing material. Others we will use for trim boards and other interior finish material. Logs too small for any of the above uses are cut into firewood. Small trees can be relocated on the clients property. And all brush can be chipped for reuse as erosion control while building or finished landscaping.

Foundation and Building

Before the foundation is poured, we are already paying attention to the detail of energy efficiency. We insulate underneath the basement slab, and the entire length and height of the foundation walls, including the top portion. No foundation concrete is left exposed to cause heat loss in your home. This also keeps the thermal mass of the concrete inside the insulation providing an integral heat sink for your building.

During the framing stage that same attention is paid, particularly in the hardest to insulate portion of the framing, the box sill. First the sill plate is sealed to the foundation wall, and then rim board is sealed to the sill plate. The entire floor system is built just a bit different from a typical floor to allow us to install continuous air sealing and insulation along the entire length of the box sill.

Throughout the remainder of the framing process issues concerning air sealing and insulation continue to be of main focus for Earthwalk. Many of the details we incorporate at the framing stage are very difficult if not impossible to accomplish later on.

As we add our smart home infrastructure to your home we take care to maximize the energy and sustainability benefits at every step of the way.

Forethought at this stage pays huge dividends in the quality and comfort of your home in the end.

Finishing Touches

To us there is nothing as beautiful as simple details done perfectly. So we take care to ensure that there are only natural and non toxic materials used in the finishing process. We can even offer you guidance in equipping and furnishing your home to avoid importing toxins and to optimize the operational efficiency of your home.

Our Eco services include  designcoaching and consulting, project managment, construction, interior design and landscpae design services.

So just give us a call to talk about your project.
