What do you offer? I offer architectural and custom-designed projects that can incorporate healthy, eco-friendly applications to mitigate problems like water infiltration and mold; minimize electromagnetic and geomagnetic radiation; and increase energy efficiency with passive solar, radiant heat, or a custom whole-house heating system.
