SolarTerra Design LLC provides design and construction support services to custom home buyers and builders. Working closely with all project participants, we help to increase project efficiency and reduce costs by ensuring sub-contractors are familiar with "building science" construction details, and that the project will minimize construction waste and site impact.
We can assist in the up-front sustainable design elements of the project and coordinate the installation of sustainable systems systems and recommend healthy materials and finishes.
SolarTerra Design LLC's involvement in the project can reduce the finished project's ongoing energy and maintenance costs, increase it's durability and future value, and create a healthy and comfortable living environment.
