The Vermont St. Project is a collaboration of design/build team members, reclaimed and natural materials, energy efficiency and recent technologies, and a craft intensive application — a logical, achievable, and certainly at times difficult path when creating a home. Our many thanks to the following partners for their insight, skill, and products:

ecohaus ( – Ecohaus has been supplying eco-friendly building and finish materials to the Pacific Northwest since 1992. From blue jean insulation and dual flush toilets to carcinogen-free paints in any color, Ecohaus is your one-stop-shop for green home remodel — located in Seattle and Portland.

Dimensional Millwork, Inc. ( – Provided us with earth-friendly window & door material options from Kolbe & Kolbe, such as FSC certified wood windows with aluminum exterior cladding.

Shelterworks ( – Out of Philomath, OR is the manufacturer of Faswall insulated foundation blocks. These amazing Insulated Concrete Forms (ICFs) are made of recycled wood and Portland cement.

Chown Hardware ( – This family owned hardware and plumbing store in downtown Portland has opened our eyes to service and product quality in both plumbing fixtures and door hardware, including European lines like Kaldewei and Hansgrohe as well as Sun Valley Bronze.

imagine energy
Imagine Energy ( – We’re working with this alternative energy engineering and installation company on HVAC design, a 4.2 Kilowatt photovoltaic system, and a domestic hot water solar heating system. Sanyo & Shuco supplied the solar panels. Both the panels and the component parts of this German manufacturer are state of the art and look to be quite long lasting.

Basco ( – Builders Appliance Supply Company is clearly the Northwest’s premier supplier and has given us great expertise and support developing a state-of-the-art appliance line from Miele.

westside electric
West Side Electric ( – Running electric in a home with exposed timbers, vaulted ceilings and structural insulated panels is never easy. Add to that our push for the most recent technologies of LED lighting and home controls and you can appreciate why we needed one of the best firms in Portland. We got it.

Premier panels
Premier Panels ( – supplied the structural insulated panes (SIPs) for the roof. They are certainly the west coast’s largest panel manufacturer with a solid product and quality service.
