High Performance Home Builder

Cedar Street Builders does not strive to be a “one stop shop.”  We know the best solutions will come from involving the experts around us. 

We collaborate with architects and designers, green building consultants, energy raters, product manufacturers, and the installing subcontractors that will be hands-on creating your vision.  We craft a quality, durable structure using thoughtfully designed and implemented energy efficient building components and quality ventilation systems.  The end result – your high performance home will keep you comfortable while doing very little work.

Working together from the early stages will ensure the intent of the home’s performance is carried out during construction and it is done in the most cost effective way.  If you are interested in taking high performance a step further, we have experience with Certified Passive and Net Zero Energy construction.

This is how we do it.


Cedar Street Builders ensures the right team is assembled for each project. As the General Contractor, we work to ensure the best subcontractors are selected while maintaining the project budget, but we also consider ourselves a true Construction Manager and we will help select the architect, manage the design process, and utilize the proper consultants, energy raters, etc. We will ensure that all parties are working together toward a common goal, and in a timely manner. The homeowner is part of the process every step of the way to ensure there are no surprises along the way, and every objective is met.


Each product that makes up your home is carefully selected by you and the team for its performance, sustainability, and aesthetic qualities. We ensure that these products are analyzed for proper installation, maintenance details and how these products work together. The biggest issues on construction projects occur when two different products meet and the design/construction team has not evaluated how they will work as a cohesive unit.


Once the building begins, each activity is carefully planed and installation is reviewed daily to ensure the designed systems are built as intended. In many cases we are working with the latest proven products and methods – Cedar Street Builders ensures that each trade is fully trained on the task, and product manufacturers are involved in the process.


Cedar Street Builders ensures the construction quality of each project, and we also believe that out industry benefits from 3rd party verification to ensure the exceptional construction can carry the High Performance, Sustainable, or Green tag with it for its long lifetime. Multiple programs are available for this, and we will help evaluate if one is right for your project.

“Cedar Street Builders knows that what they are building is more than a clever arrangement of bricks, wood, and mortar.  They recognize that it is a home, where the focus should be the comfort and convenience of those living there.”
John Stehr, Homeowner
