“From the beginning of our company, we have been humbled by the New England traditions of valuing community and working together to build both a better society and building stock for future generations. This is the ethos and physical reality that inspired our company. The revival of timber frame construction could not have happened outside of a place ensconced in its proven benefits; high-performance building is only a continuation of centuries of the search for more sustainable methods and lifestyles.”
