Custom Building

At Fieldgate, we recognize the fact that appropriately scaled home designs with a seamless building envelope are essential for energy efficiency in heating and cooling your home. We specialize in custom and green designs such as straw bale and timber frame homes.

Rob is trained in Nudura technology for Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) foundations and structures. Building a home with lower energy demands might include one or several of the following options:

  • Insulated Concrete Form foundation and exterior walls
  • Geothermal heating and cooling systems
  • Passive heating and environmental placement (products used to build your house and where it is placed so that it can optimally absorb or deflect the energy of the sun)
  • Solar water heating
  • On demand water heating
  • Radiant in-floor heating
  • Energy star windows with low e and argon
