How to do more with less?

This question has steered our company for 30 years, through geodesic dome building, conventional construction and, over the last ten years, to straw bale building. Doing more with less is the pursuit of building more efficient, comfortable, healthy homes with less energy consumption and environmental cost. And of course, doing more with less means building the best possible building for the least amount of money. Please look around the web site and feel free to contact us.
