Pre-Construction, Wall Construction and General Contracting Services
We understand each project is unique and requires its own approach to design and construction. Depending on location, owner involvement, budget and labor resources, we can support projects in a variety of ways, such as:
This involvement includes initial site visits to locate the building and determine other improvements that need to be made. Cost estimating, value engineering, and consultation on building systems continue as the project progresses through the completion of design and engineering.
We can either provide full earthen wall construction services to the top of bond beam (see Figure below), including plaster services. Alternatively we can provide on and off-site consultation to make sure walls are properly installed and protected by the selected contractor. We are teamed with masons that can provide services throughout Colorado.
We can provide full contracting services for your build. Our licensed contractor, Mark Scully, has been building since 1980 and is dedicated to high quality and high-performance construction. Mark is available also to consult and support your local contractors as needed.

Typical Wall Section
Below is a typical wall section that shows how a one-story earthen masonry wall could be built using a double wall system. It is possible to build two stories with earthen masonry, however a concrete bond-beam (shown in below in item #3) would be required between floor levels. All our structures are engineered according to applicable building codes for reinforced masonry.

We understand there is a lot of information to digest when considering building outside the normal way of doing things. Please visit our Resource Page to learn more about foundation types, energy performance and compliance, building codes, and much more!
