How Bachelder & Associates Defines Green Building

“Green building is the term given for all the practices that can go into making a your home, or any building, one that is healthier to live in, and one that is healthier for the rest of the planet to live with. It’s kind of a no-brainer: design and build a home so that the rest of the planet is improved, as the home is improved.”

The Remodeling Process

The decision to remodel one’s home starts with a need or a desire. We recommend bringing us in before the design process with the architect or designer. By working together with you and the architect, we can help you get a design that works within your budget instead of coming in after the fact and having to give you the bad news.

Attention to Detail

“This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances, complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. Life is no brief candle to me; it is a sort of splendid torch, which I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.”

~ George Bernard Shaw
