Default Eco Building

Use building science principles. Control water entry, air entry, moisture flow, heat flow. This preserves the building and comfort, reduces energy use, and creates the possibility of a good place to be.

Build well - A building that lasts twice as long costs half as much energy and materials to create.

Build thoughtfully - If a building could last but is not desired, it will fail to stay around. If a building is not designed well, the heat pumps must run to manage solar heat gain; or the windows must open to air out preservatives; or the inside of the home or business is not nice.
