design - Design rules! We have over 24 years of professional design experience in everything from large resort projects to tiny backyard sheds… and commercial retail, industrial design, advertising & display, and more. We focus on finding well conceived and thought-out design solutions for our clients.
planning and budgets – We can review your particular permitting needs while creating a budget and schedule for the installation of your home. View the budgets table, on the right, as an example to represent the total cost excluding the land.
energy efficiency - In addition to design, our experience includes the design, implementation, and management of energy efficiency programs throughout the country. We know all about energy efficiency measures, appliances, lighting, and products. More importantly, we know which are cost effective and contribute to lower monthly costs and quality of life.
resource efficiency - We’ve always been all about using resources intelligently. We put together one of the first pilot programs in the country looking at building products that use recycled & renewable material. Same with water, using less is good! And indoor air quality. At every opportunity, ideabox features smart resource use.
prefab construction - We learned the prefab building industry through the design & management of energy efficiency programs. This experience allowed us to learn the details of construction practices in production facilities throughout the Northwest. We know the intrinsic issues of building in a production facility, which is why our houses are unlike any other.
ultimate lifestyle - All of these experiences are about delivering a cool house, with awesome materials, that’s just the right size, and at a price that works!
