Specialists In Healthy, High- Performance Net Zero Homes

Scott has always had an interest in healthy building (especially internal air quality), but this became an obsession when he built his own family home to help his daughter who suffered from severe allergies. After they moved in, her Paediatrician said, “I don’t know exactly what you did, but it sure worked.” And Scott’s daughter has been almost completely allergy-free since.

With rising energy prices, Scott also took a special interest in building net-zero homes where your home produces more energy than it uses, eliminating power bills forever. Scott has developed a proven process in net-zero design, product selection, and installation that gives measurable energy outcomes (KPIs) so you can be sure your home is genuinely energy-efficient.
