As a seasoned general contractor and PhD level scientist, Earth Bound President Dr. David Edwards’ extensive research into the best practices and materials available for sustainable home building and remodeling has resulted in homes that are the healthiest, most durable, highest quality custom homes ever built. Dr. Edwards personally scrutinizes everything that goes into Earth Bound projects, is a local authority on green building and building science, and writes on green building topics on his blog.

Earth Bound Homes are characterized by industry leading:

Energy Efficiency: Earth Bound Homes has built several of the most energy efficient homes in the country including several zero energy homes. The owners of Earthbound built homes typically save 75-85% on their energy bills and up to 70% on their water bills. Our model house in Santa Clara, a 3100 sq. ft. home to a family of 5, has utility bills that average $13 per month.

Quality: By using high quality materials and best, most cost effective building practices, our homes are stronger and longer lasting, and require far less maintenance and fewer repairs, saving you precious time and money, all year, every year.

Lack of Toxic Materials: Unlike 99% of other builders, Earth Bound Homes uses no toxic materials in our homes. From plywoods that don’t off-gas formaldehyde to low and no-VOC, water base paints and finishes, you can be sure that the materials used in your home are free of toxic solvents, poison chemicals and carcinogens.

Better Value: We work with you and your architect on a vigilant value engineering process which enables us to significantly reduce project costs without sacrifices in aesthetics or quality.
