Earth Advantage New Construction

When John and Bea moved to Corvallis, we helped them find a property and build their dream home. The Earth Advantage Institute awarded the house their highest designation, the Platinum award, for its sustainable building features.

The lot’s existing home was dilapidated, but it had a distinctive curved foundation. We removed the deteriorated wood framing, but saved portions of the foundation. After pouring new curved walls using Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF blocks), we built the two-story 3,900 square foot super-insulated home with south-facing passive solar windows, a sunroom, and glulam columns supporting the roof. The unique design incorporates solar-tube lighting on the lower level.

The 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom home includes some dramatic architectural features: a graceful curved concrete interior stairway, floors crafted from locally-milled madrone hardwood and concrete tinted with a soy-based stain, a custom-colored American Clay (plaster) accent wall, a custom cedar sauna, a high-efficiency wood stove with soapstone accent, custom handrails, spectacular tile bathrooms, and a spacious kitchen with recycled Eco quartz countertops and commercial-grade appliances. For the canine members of the family, there’s a tile dog washing shower and a dog doorbell.
