You Deserve Someone in Your Corner

You don't have to feel lost, confused, or overwhelmed...

... Sustainable Home Resource is here to help.

I understand how frustrating and overwhelming it can feel to design and build a sustainable home - I've been there. 

I understand the potential pitfalls that can lie on your path(because I’ve fallen into them). I'll show you how to avoid them, how to save time, and how to avoid expensive mistakes. 

I'll share my experience from decades of design, engineering, building, and living in my self-sustaining home to guide you through creating a clear plan on paper for your home.

As a structural engineer working in the residential building industry, I became concerned about the toxic and damaging affects of conventional buildings on our health and the planet. 

So, in 2010, I moved back to my home town of Durango to build a self-sustaining home for my family.

Together with my two young sons, an open-minded builder, and a few helpers we built Twisted Oak - a home the heats and cools itself, generates its power, collects and heats its water, and manages waste in an environmentally responsible way.
