Forge Craft Healthy Homes

With Forge Craft Healthy Homes, we can help you live better than you imagined.

We all want the best for our family.

A home that is safe and welcoming and beautiful.

Warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

Designed to stand the test of time without demanding too much from the earth (or our wallets).

A place that brings us joy and feeds our soul when we walk in the door.

And no dust. Is no dust too much to ask?

What Is A Healthy Home?

We design single-family residences to the Passive House standard. This is an internationally recognized approach that creates more durable, resilient homes that use dramatically less energy and reduce carbon emissions. The best part is there are no trade-offs when it comes to experience. In fact, you get more comfortable, cleaner and healthier environments with less noise and fewer allergens than other homes.

Better for you, better for the planet. And, ultimately better for your wallet.

Healthy Home Benefits

Cleaner Air.

Unlike traditional building, our Healthy Homes offers a constant supply of fresh, filter air and expel pollutants and CO2.

Superior Performance.

Our designs use 40-80% less energy and vastly lower carbon emissions. We strive to optimize the building process so that there is little to no difference in up-front cost between a Healthy Home and a traditional custom home. Down the road, the efficiencies of a Healthy Home can save you thousands on energy and maintenance.

Healthier Materials.

Every last material that goes into your home is vetted with your health and that of the environment in mind.

Better Sleep.

With a constant flow of fresh, filtered air, carbon dioxide levels are better managed, which can lead to a better night’s sleep.

Built to last.

With a more durable building envelope, our homes are built for the long haul and require less maintenance than traditional homes.

Comfortable year-round.

Every element of the design works together to ensure your home stays just the way you want it – rain, shine or snowpocalypse.

Exceptional Design.

Our award-winning team is working at the forefront of design for some of the most forward-thinking organizations on the planet. As your design partner, we’ll work with you to understand your goals and your lifestyle, and together, we’ll craft a home that will help you live better than you imagined.

Smart Design.

We can help you customize your environment with the latest technology, integrated into the design, giving you a delightful level of control and insight into your home’s performance.
