Our Commitment to the Environment


Energy efficiency and sustainability are at the heart of our design philosophy. These principals are evaluated throughout the design and specification process.

Modern Fabrication System – Protecting Old-Growth Forests

Our modern fabrication system ensures a Stillwater home is highly insulated and tightly sealed to reduce energy costs and environmental impacts.

Our prefabricated panels are produced from an exceptional, manufactured timber that is superior to solid, sawn timber from which traditional homes are built. In nearly all conditions it will not twist, split, cup or warp—before or after it reaches the job site.

Not only does our method reduce waste up to 50% compared to traditional building methods, it also helps to protect old-growth forests.

LEED-Certied Architects

Our LEED-Certied architects (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) are dedicated to home design that is sustainable, a sound and energy smart – for years to come.

Just a quick note to say something about the energy efficiency of our home. After the sun was up the outside temperature eventually increased to a high of 45°F during the day. Our furnace briefly came on twice during the morning and did not come on the rest of the day! Although the outside temperature never rose above 45°, the inside temperature climbed to 75° by noon! And with nothing but the sun’s rays warming the interior! Apparently, whoever designed this thing really knew what they were doing! -Stillwater Homeowner, Cedaredge, Colorado

Here are a few of the ways our commitment to the environment is illustrated within our homes:

  • Exterior walls are rated at R28 and roofs at R50
  • Low VOC (volatile organic compounds) paint used throughout
  • Photovoltaic and car charger ready
  • Kitchen and bathroom countertops are made from recycled glass and porcelain
