Shelter Design and Construction emphasizes energy efficiency, sustainability, durability, waste reduction and recycling. Using non-toxic building materials is a priority. We encourage the homeowner's involvement and input in the process of making educated choices about design development and materials selection. We are members of the U.S. Green Building Council, the local, state, and national Home Builder's Association, the Austin Green Building Program since 1999, the Sustainable Building Coalition ("Design/Build/Live"), NARI (National Association of the Remodeling Industry), and the Better Business Bureau.
Shelter Design and Construction provides assistance in the design and project development process, and is accomplished in all phases of residential construction. In addition to project design, remodeling, additions, and custom homes, our areas of expertise include kitchen and bathroom remodels, screened porches and decks, attic and garage conversions, and the renovation of historical homes. Although most of our work is in Austin, we also do projects in surrounding communities.
