Craftsmanship in Energy Efficiency
Pura Vida High Performance Builders is founded upon the tradition of high-craft carpentry, and state-of-the-art energy efficient modeling. The two go hand-in-hand to create projects of quality and integrity.

When Pura Vida High Performance Builders collaborates with you and your Design Team during the pre-construction phase, the result is a carefully planned project with details of both beauty and quantitative energy-efficiency. Your custom energy model will anchor the project as it moves into the construction phase.

Upon breaking ground, you can trust that Pura Vida High Performance Builders’ team of high-craft carpenters will be approaching each detail with a mind for quality and consistency. They will work hand in hand with our specialty trade-partners to see the project through and deliver you tremendous results.

Post Construction
Post-Construction you will be given an individualized Owner’s Manual for your High Performance Build, and the peace of mind that while being beautifully crafted, your home or commercial building will perform at an unsurpassed level of energy efficiency.  


Elk PHIUS+ Certified Passive House

The region’s first Passive House, designed by award-winning Architect Sam Rodell AIA,  was completed by Pura Vida High Performance Builders in 2014 . Detailed to heat itself through Elk’s long winter’s using sunlight and internal heat gains, the project illustrates that extreme energy efficiency does not have to sacrifice beauty and craftsmanship.
