Building A Better Way

A Better Way

 

—  WHAT WE DO  —

We are a Home Building Company.  While we do not design the homes we build, we collaborate with the best architects in the San Francisco Bay Area to bring their visions to life for our clients.   We build new custom homes, additions and major remodels involving at least 1000 sq ft. of the existing home.  Earth Bound Homes uses state of the art building techniques and materials to create beautiful, efficient homes.  Through a complete and rigorous analysis of your project, we will offer you alternatives to the traditional or standard building materials or details as a way to increase your home’s durability and efficiency, while eliminating the use of toxic and off-gassing materials in your home. Our use of advanced building principles, high quality materials and a holistic approach to home building helps us create amazing homes.  

While all of our projects come from outside architects and designers, Earth Bound Homes is often the first point of contact. After our first meeting with homeowners, we will often recommend 1 or 2 architects that we feel will most closely fit with the architectural style, project scope, budget, the size of the home and often most importantly, the personality of the homeowner(s). This collaborative group of the homeowner, the architect and Earth Bound Homes, brings together a divergent set of beliefs and experiences, thereby giving the homeowner the advantages of differing points of view throughout the design and build process. By working with the architects and Earth Bound Homes, the homeowners can realize the greatest cost savings during the beginning of the project’s design phase through the final build out of the home or remodel. By thoroughly planning the project before construction begins, we can dramatically reduce budget overruns and change orders with the end result being a much better home.

Proper Planning during Pre-Construction Services(PCS)...

To help create a clear vision we integrate the Client, Architect and Builder into one collaborative team. Together, we work achieve the Client’s dreams while honoring the Architect's design and respecting the Client's budget.  Our fully transparent project pricing means that you never have to worry about how much everything is going to cost because you have access to every bid, proposal and estimate.  Additionally, we enlist the support of additional subject matter experts as needed and utilize our deep roster of talented subcontractors to add to the team, addressing any special design nuances with craftsmen in the know. Our process is highly collaborative and iterative, and our job is to focus the team toward achieving a common goal. We understand the stress of construction projects and we work to eliminate the unknown, reduce frustration and keep the project on budget.  The result?  You can enjoy the process and be an active participant, as we build your new home, together.
