Earthen Touch Natural Builders LLC
Adobe Home Construction
At Earthen Touch Natural Builders, we specialize in creating sustainable, natural, healthy homes and structures of any kind. From a bathroom renovation, to a room add-on, to an entire home built from foundation to finish, we have done it all. We rise to each new challenge a project brings and enjoy our diverse and interesting work.
We are well versed in traditional construction but our primary focus is building using natural materials. We have experience in Straw Bale Construction, Adobe Construction, Pumice-Crete and when we do work in Traditional Stick Framed construction, we created when we can a highly insulated version. We also work in Cob Construction and Light/Straw Clay, but to a lesser degree.
Our building goals are to make every structure we make more energy efficient so that the inhabitants not only use less energy day to day, but are more comfortable during seasonal changes.
We are well versed in living-off-grid and are able up to help any owner-builder plan and execute systems to become more energy self-sufficient. We have designed and installed Photo voltaic Systems (PV’s) for electricity use and Solar Hot Water Collectors for hot water use, to name a few of our sustainable skills.
When working on any project we use healthy paints, stains and glues and will not use toxic building materials to the degree necessary on any project. When finishing interiors, we often use our own blend of custom earthen and lime plasters and have installed many a custom earthen floor (also known as poured adobe or mud floors).
We have consulted clients on many project, using our combined skills to either help them design a space or home, to maximize the efficiency of a space. We also have stepped in to provide design advice during the final finishing aspects to many projects. We are happy to lend our combined talents at any point during a project in order to create the best outcome for all.
Our work is considered high-end with attention to detail our specialty - while remaining affordable. Helping owner-builders design and define their ideal healthy, natural home or structure is one of our key strengths. And bringing any shade of green to any project, our goal.
We are not limited to the Santa Fe area and have worked on projects in Colorado, Arizona and all throughout New Mexico. We are open to any challenge and would be happy to discuss any project you might conceive of.
Feel free to contact us to run an idea by us, to obtain more details about any of the above or to simply learn more.
