Business Description
Birdseye Design strikes a unique balance between innovation and tradition, structure and nature. Each Birdseye home reflects the landscapes and communities in which the home is built and benefits from the company’s pioneering role in green energy and sustainable building in Vermont.

With a keen awareness of our increasingly fragile environment, the Birdseye team artfully embraces practicality and sustainability. The award-winning work draws on a range of design styles and traditions, bringing to life the vision of each client.

Principal architect, Brian J. Mac, AIA, works alongside other Birdseye artisans, including carpenters, woodworkers, and blacksmiths. This open workshop environment fuels collaboration and a dynamic design process, which results in one-of-a-kind creations of beauty and originality.

Thx. Do you know the mfr of the roof?

We are considering a custom timber frame ski house in Bromley/Stratton after this project is completed. We will contact you for that.

I appreciate what you're saying, geeman1082; sometimes it's just greater than us as individuals. I know Hydro-Quebec moved people and habitat was destroyed to power Quebec and the northeast US. I know climate change has caused temperatures to rise and fall drastically and typically the grid gets stretched on those extreme days. I know my lack of pull on the grid at that time is helping my neighbors, you know what I mean? I also know when the power goes off, mine doesn't - I still have water, heat, lights, a fridge still keeping food cold, and other appliances working. But when you live with solar panels, you also tend to be more aware of what you're using, so when the batteries kick in, we adjust for the situation. I also know when it's time for me to move on … I will have made the next inhabitants' life a lot easier. Isn't that what we're suppose to be doing?

That's a different topic. But if we're going to discuss personal beliefs, I believe that there are *much* better places to donate my money if the goal is helping people. Sounds like we simply have differing beliefs, and that's okay. Best Regards.

This concrete finish was just a power trowel finish. Nothing too fancy here! The top coat seal was an acrylic concrete sealer.
