He who works with his hands is a laborer.
He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman.
He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.
- Saint Francis of Assisi
We believe that we're impacted by the built environment, and we aim to improve that relationship. Whether a project is big or small – a stairway or a stool, a dwelling or a door – great building starts with great design. Our goal is to enhance all spaces and interactions through purposeful structure and finely crafted detail.
Founders Mike Stoner and Jesse Pellman, LEED® AP began with a vision to create better housing based on the principals that for something to last, it must be well-loved, and that all we do should carry the awareness that our actions reverberate throughout our broader community.
We believe that sustainability goes beyond the individual spaces and things we build, restore, and renovate. This core ideology is why we’ve recently become a Certified B Corporation. Relationships are at the heart of our business, and the center of what we do. Whether it’s with a client, co-worker, architect, artisan, our neighbor or our environment, we’re always more interested in developing a relationship than a contract. So we’ve worked hard to cultivate a unique and comprehensive understanding of high performance, healthy, and sustainable housing.
We feel fortunate to have been joined by some great friends and makers along the way who help to further the mission of crafting sustainability.
