While “home” is at the center of Green Home Design Build, our background lies in commercial construction. We are bonded and insured to work on commercial buildings up to 40′ in height. Our professional project management skills, staffing levels and building knowledge translate to the light commercial sector. As such, we are bonded and insured to work on commercial buildings up to 40′ tall.
Efficient and lasting construction is a natural fit for wineries. Vintners and winery owners understand the importance of managing their impacts on the local environment, ensuring stable temperatures and controlling long-term operating costs. We’ve successfully worked with both Viento Wines and Analemma Wines to create efficient buildings with beautiful retail environments.
Our custom homes are a reflection of the diverse owners who live in them. Your home is designed to enhance your day, from your morning coffee to relaxing in the evening. We strive to design homes that can work well for a smaller family and still make larger gatherings comfortable. Our projects combine timely design ideas, super efficient envelopes, natural daylighting, fire resistance, and low maintenance.
If your home was built before 1978, the existing paint may contain lead which requires specialized preparation work. This work is regulated by the US EPA, administered and enforced by the CCB during a repainting project.
We are a Certified Lead-Based Paint Renovation Contractor. Serving the Columbia Gorge, we work with homeowners and house painters to plan, execute, and document lead-safe paint prep projects. As required by the EPA, we keep project records on file for three years.
After the house has been prepped for painting by a Certified Lead-Based Paint Renovation Contractor, you may paint the house yourself, or work with any painter. You or your painting contractor WILL NOT have to work under the Lead-Based Paint rules.
