At Earthen Touch Natural Builders, we are life and building partner-contractors who specialize in natural building methods using sustainable materials. We have been working in the building trade for more than ten years, each.
From adobe, straw-bale, pumice-block, cob, light-straw clay to traditional construction, we bring to your project the elements which work best for you.
Using earthen and lime plasters, and other natural materials for finishing, we help make a home warm, healthy and beautiful. Our workmanship is high end - with attention to detail our most noted specialty.
Having worked in traditional construction and being ourselves committed to natural building, we bring our lifestyle preference into our chosen profession to work with owner-builders to incorporate sustainable practices, or natural building into any project.
Whether you would like to make your home more sustainable, healthier, or simply need advice on the natural building process, we can help you along the way.
As each person has his or her interpretation of green or sustainable practices, we will assist you in defining and creating your green home, by any degree.
For the owner-builder who needs assistance, to projects where we create for you from beginning to end, we will guide you to a finished product with both economy and quality top of mind. We have worked across the board in terms of project type and size and can help create your vision or consult on any project you have in mind.
Should you require design assistance in the beginning of any project, we work with committed natural building architects as part of our team.
Our work is not limited to New Mexico as we are mobile and able to travel to an area for extended periods for 24 hour onsite attention to any project.
