I learned green building from my Dad. He was a boy during the Depression, served in the Navy during World War II and the Korean War, after his service he became a chemist for GM and taught me many things at home, including wiring, plumbing, carpentry and masonry. He did it all. He was always saving and doing the best with what he had, building things thing the right way so they would last and always thinking of how something could be useful in the future. He was green out of necessity. For example, when my folks added onto their home in the 60's, Dad saved the leftover bricks in the crawl space. He knew he may need them someday and he was right. In the 80's Dad and I reroofed my childhood home and the chimney needed restoration too. Dad went back to crawlspace and pulled out those bricks and we rebuilt the chimney. Those old bricks then became part of a rip-wrap border to help control erosion along the stream in our back yard. This is where my love of building and being green started for me.
My goal at Wright Design for each project is to take design and construction practices to the next level through improving energy efficiency, building with durable materials and providing universal access for all.
