Cedar Street Builders focuses on building high quality – high performance homes utilizing the best proven construction methods and products available while working within each project’s specific budget and design goals.


We work with the owners, designers, product manufacturers, municipalities, and sub-contractors to ensure that the home is designed to last, and that the design is fully realized by understanding each and every product and how they work together to complete a high performance home.


Cedar Street Builders does not strive to be a “one stop shop” and we know the best solutions will come from involving the experts around us, from architects and designers, to green building consultants, energy raters, product manufacturers, and the installing subcontractors that will be hands-on creating your vision.  A collaborative approach is taken on every project.


Working together from the early stages will ensure the true intent of the home’s design is carried out during construction and it is done in the most cost effective way.

We have the passion and the experience. We love building quality homes.  We are building this generation of High Performance Homes.
