GAIA Builders

Our Work

Current project in progress since February, 2006
Shadow Hills Home & Workshop

Our clients are a husband and wife (an organic gardener/musician/drama teacher and costume designer) who want their home and workshop built as ecologically as possible.

  1. The design by AIA architect Rick Leslie was developed with sustainability in mind. Large overhangs will keep the summer heat out and allow heat in during the cooler winter months.

  2. The concrete slab will be polished and sealed and used as the finished floor for its natural heating cooling qualities.

    More eco-friendly techniques are in process, including a gray water system.
