Energy Efficient Green Building

We specialize in custom residential construction and renovations focusing on innovative designs that are beautifully crafted, hyper energy efficient and follow national green building standards. Along with our love of fine craftsmanship, we also pay close attention to indoor air quality, green material selection and minimizing environmental impact. We have developed a particular passion and solid reputation for building High Performance,  low energy demand and net zero energy homes that are durable, healthy and sustainable. Our clients love to live in these homes because they are comfortable and achieve the highest standards of energy performance. We also have the awards to prove it!  We serve Chittenden and Addison Counties in Vermont.

We provide full design-build services so we can take your project from the idea phase all the way to completion. Our on staff architect and project development team can flush out every detail of your new home, remodel or renovation, pull together detailed estimates and then work alongside our crew of skilled builders to bring your project to life. We are also happy to collaborate with architects and designers outside of our team and personalize the services you need us to provide to see your project through.

Best of the Best Award 2012We love to build and it shows in everything we do. We recognize that building or renovating a home is a creative, exciting and sometimes stressful process. It is our aim to make the building experience as enjoyable and stress-free as possible by building strong, collaborative working partnerships with all of our clients. We keep meticulous track of all the important details and maintain a high level of transparency throughout the building and remodeling process so you are fully informed about every aspect of your project from the design to the building schedule to the budget. This is vital to ensure the success of our projects, and has helped us develop a reputation as one of the leading builders in the area for building quality, performance, and customer service.

About Tim Yandow

I bring 22 years of carpentry, building and contracting experience to my company. Before establishing Yandow Green Builders, I was a Field Biologist involved in many years of ecological research in arctic and alpine environments in New England, Colorado and far northern Alaska. For 16 years I also maintained a private practice in European Biological Medicine, Clinical Nutrition and Herbology where I gained a deep understanding of how foods and the environment affect our health. During this time, I also came to appreciate how important it is to establish strong working relationships with my clients built on mutual trust, honesty and respect. I bring all of this experience as a biologist and health care practitioner into my work as a builder.
