Mark is an Energy Consultant for a heating & AC company and has spent years helping other people make their homes more efficient. So naturally he came to us for this project. We put up the SIPS shell and framed the floor and covered porch area. He was thrilled with the result and since he has experience in construction himself they opted to finish out the project on their own.

Olive’s Home Rescue



While Olive was in the hospital, her house was vandalized and the roof started leaking. Olive contacted us to fix the roof but it didn’t feel right to just fix the roof and leave the rest of the house the way it was. We arranged for volunteers and donations and coordinated work on the house. The majority of the work and materials were donated by advanced build. Olive’s house is fixed up and livable once again.

Renee’s Tiny House



To our delight Renee contacted us with this project originally as a panel order, but we opted to help her with the construction. Unfortunately family matters took her out of town during the build, but we still got the shell up in record time and she was thrilled to come home to it. To hear read more on her amazing story and to see regular updates on her tiny house build just visit her website at:

Galeno Residence



This is a home that we built over several years with the customer doing some of the work himself

It is situated on a rocky outcropping so we had to jackhammer a lot for the power, water, and septic lines

The septic was an engineered mound system and was located a block from the property

We did the outside shell and interior framing, plumbing, and electrical

We put on the metal roof and siding

We also built the detached garage that has parking on the roof area [can have building put up in the future]

Did the ground work and block retaining walls

Mathers Remodel



The Mathers wanted to update the look of the front of their home and add on a master suite, in addition to a half bath remodel and taking out a wall to open up the living space. The house had had several remodels over the years and they wanted to make it their own by incorporating a Craftsman style flair. We also added several decks across the back to give them some outdoor living spaces.

Famous Footwear



This was a classic Tenant Improvement project for the Famous Footwear franchise at the South Hill Mall located in Puyallup, WA. It was a complete remodel of an old clothing store space to exacting corporate specifications. We were responsible for everything from the interior updates to upgrading heating and electrical throughout the store.

Project Description


As a subcontractor for this beautiful home, we were hired to install the Structural Insulated Panels. It has three levels with a daylight basement that has three large rooms. The main floor has two “master” suites. One suite is quite large with a no step threshold large walk in shower, ADA sink and toilet, jetted tub, a huge walk-in-closet and a huge bedroom with a door to a private cozy deck and outdoor fireplace. The other master suite is more basic because it was built for a care-giver.

Other features include a laundry room that is as big as most people’s master bedroom, a large wrap around porch, and a fireplace in the family room. The floor plan is a great room concept with a super huge kitchen with ADA appliances. It, also, has an elevator and a central vacuum that the hose stores in the tube. The second level has two master suites and a small living space between the two suites.
