The Artisans Group is a true Design and Build firm. Bring us your needs with the confidence that we will take full responsibility for every phase of the project, while you spend your energy on realizing your dreams, and not on trying to manage a surprisingly large group of specialists and suppliers.
We have designed and built more Passive Houses than any other firm in Washington State. Creating a successful Passive House requires many different fiercely committed players who focus on the details. We have the experience to identify the important details, and a proven history of "getting them right."
On a more personal level, every person at the Artisans Group agrees on the essential need for freedom. Given the scope of choices in our lives, how we each achieve our sense of freedom looks different from one freedom-seeker to the next. Though, we all agree that ‘simplifying’ is at the core of it somehow.
Fundamentally we need warm, dry shelter, good quality food and water, decent air to breathe, and a good amount of natural beauty, but, 'quality of life' begs us to expand our definition of 'fundamental'. Discussions about 'freedom' around our offices include such topics as 'peace of mind against rising future energy costs', ‘limiting our carbon footprint‘, ‘more time for family and friends‘, 'easy home maintenance’, ‘the total cost of owning a home’, ‘good health into old age‘ and of course, we all dream of traveling sooner than later.
Not surprising to us, it turns out our clients feel much the same as we do. We are delighted to have found home buyers who value a new approach to the idea of ‘home’. At the Artisans Group, we are designing and building homes that we want to live in too. It’s pretty simple.
