Do you have a Code violation and need resolution with building authorities? We offer negotiation and conversion to new conforming or obtain otherwise approved use. We can provide all skills and documents to solve your complicated project and make your inspector happy–chances are we already know him or her.
Straw-bale Construction: We have a system! Houses and larger structures, studios, second units or smaller accessory buildings, stables and barns– we make you a heritage building as a modular system (prefabricated) for building with straw-bales. We supply the entire structure (or what you need) built at our shop and then delivered to your site ready to assemble–rely on our experience to take the guesswork out of it! Services including design, engineering and permits through all phases of construction. Use local straw bale or we supply California rice straw made to our specifications. We assemble or we will help you. Available for worldwide distribution–everything fits in a shipping container.
