I'm Kristina Munroe,...
...and I remember when I first decided to design and build Twisted Oak, my self-sustaining home, I was terrified. I understand the fear, and the overwhelm of taking on what seems like a monumental task.
Even with years of experience as a structural engineer in the residential building industry, I wasn't sure I could design and build my own sustainable home.
But I took it step-by-step, and I now live in a home that I love. I've tested the features and sustainable systems since 2011 and I know what works and what doesn't.
Whether you plan on doing it all yourself or hiring a professional, We can help you create a sustainable home you'll love.
Twisted Oak: A Journey to Create A Self-Sustaining Life and Home
...is the story of my journey to design and build a self-sustaining home in the mountains of Colorado. Along with my two young sons, a talented carpenter, his wife, and a delightful cast of characters, we built a home that heats and cools itself, collects water, and recycles waste.
