BUILDING GREEN IS NO LONGER THE ALTERNATIVE BUT THE INNOVATIVE WAY TO BUILD HOMES.

Durango Green Homes provides the building science knowledge necessary to construct efficient long lasting homes in the various microclimates found in the Southwest and beyond. We ensure high performance by creating a precise energy model of new homes during the design process. The elevated function and durability of homes crafted by us to earn Passive House certification invariably conveys itself into every project we undertake.

 

 

WE LIKE TO LOOK AT DESIGN AS IT RELATES TO THE SURROUNDING ENVIRONMENT AND THIS HELPS TO CREATES HOMES THAT CO-EXIST WITH THEIR SURROUNDINGS VERSUS DETRACT FROM THEM.

We live in the mountains to enjoy the serenity and beauty that surrounds us, your home should blend seamlessly with nature. Our design approach focuses on limited environmental impact on site, minimizing building envelope energy losses, maximizing available renewable energy sources, and specifying sustainable materials. This approach can allows the mechanical systems to be downsized significantly saving on upfront costs and long term energy usage. A Durango Green Homes structure can be built to use 90% less energy for heating and cooling than a current code built home.

 

 

DESIGN IMPLEMENTATION IS EASY WHEN YOU ARE SURROUNDED WITH EQUALLY ZEALOUS PEOPLE.

The world of 2x4’s and plywood can be monotonous, keeping the design simple allows our homes to be built to precise detail efficiently and affordably. We allow our carpenters freedom to develop new ideas and implement more efficient techniques that help overall productivity. We call it capable carpenters with a capacity for learning. When our clients see that there is a concerted team effort towards their dream of a sustainably designed well crafted home, we have built happiness as well.
