From before recorded history human beings have constructed shelters. Though floor space and investment value may factor in, the primary job of every home is to create an environment that allows this biological mystery called human life to flourish.

Have you ever spent time in a building that embraced and nurtured you…body and soul, one that awakened and delighted your senses? Imagine being in a forest, near a gently flowing clear mountain stream. The sun is shining and its rays warm your face. A fragrant breeze lightly brushes your skin as your footsteps trod upon the soft loam of the earth beneath your feet. You can experience these sensations once again when you enter your own home, provided your home has been built in accordance with the laws of nature. In order for us to be truly natural and healthy, our homes need to supply us with adequate opportunity to rest and relax, they need to nurture, as it is only through that, that we can truly recuperate at the end of the day and recharge with the strength to deal with the next day’s emotional and physical stresses.

Materials that are not natural don’t resonate with us, and therefore don’t nourish us – they deplete us. Nature is our ultimate guide.
