The S.E.E.D Approach
Seed approaches each project by observing the unique characteristics of each site as it interacts with the elements. Then, combining thoughtful observation with ecological principles, we create home and land use designs that perform in a multitude of beneficial ways.
Throughout your project this integrated design acts as a compass, insuring the least impact to the site, plus an efficient, economical completion.
Going further, we select building and landscape materials that are manufactured and transported in a manner to further lessen that impact. We see these steps not only as the best way to build healthy efficient green homes and the most beautiful productive landscapes, but more as imperative actions that we all must take to protect the planet and the future of our children.
We are proud of this commitment, as well as the high quality and craftsmanship of our work. 
SEED is committed to our goal of building beautiful structures of heirloom quality.  These structures are intended to impact the Earth in the least amount possible, while creating a comfortable home for their inhabitants.  We are members of the US Green Building Council, the WNC Green Building Council, and we are Energy Star Partners.
