For more than twenty-five years, we have built a few projects annually, each with the idea that it should be our best work.  We have a team of seasoned professionals who do the job right the first time.  Whether it’s your architect’s plan or one that we help you create, we strive to consistently bring out the best in the design. 


As the world has become more conscious of our limited resources and the impact that humans have on the environment, we have changed the way we build.  Today we consider first the overall energy efficiency and materials to be used with a goal of using as few resources as possible.  We are members of and follow the US Green Building Council ’s LEED as well as National Association of Home Builder’s Green Home Guidelines.  We are NAHB Certified Green Professional. 


Ralph Smith is certified by the Building Performance Institute (BPI) as a Building Analyst and Envelope Professional. The Maryland Energy Administration in conjunction with the US Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency have instituted a program called “Home performance with Energy Star”.  This program trains contractors who are certified by BPI to perform Home Energy Audits and to recommend corrective actions which will reduce the net energy usage of homes.  We are very excited to be a part of this program and expect to be able to save our clients substantial expense in fuel costs and to contribute to a less energy-dependent society.


Please look over these examples of our work, and, if there’s anything we can help you with, we’d be happy to talk to you.
