BEHST Builders

BEHST stands for Buildings that are...


Energy efficiency speaks to the use of water and electricity. Resource efficiency speaks to both the quantity and the durability of the materials and methods employed. Both forms of efficiency aim to not just save our environments precious natural resources, but also to reduce the cost of ownership for our customers. We leverage simple ways to save energy such as good insulation before we encourage investment in expensive technologies.


Many homeowners suffer from asthma, allergies, or have young children who do not have fully developed immune systems. Our job is to educate homeowners on the choices they have at each phase of design and construction to improve indoor air quality. Proper ventilation, insulation and finish selections are just a few opportunities to make homes healthier. We also work closely with customers who have physical disabilities to ensure the home is accessible. The installation of zerocurb showers, wider door ways, and carefully planned cabinetry can help make a home livable for those with disabilities or for those who plan to age in place. The fact that people are living longer and the more accessible the home is, the longer people can live independently at home.


Delivering a sturdy product results from quality control and strong partnerships with designers, engineers, local suppliers, and skilled craftsmen. We think ahead and can build in plans for future additions and new telecommunications so the structure is less likely to be compromised in the future. We build both wood frame and concrete block homes depending on the clients preference and the planned style of the home.


Our mission is to build homes with warmth and character by incorporating time tested details and proportions. After all, your home is where you spend a lot of time and it should be comfortable and inspiring. Combined with durable materials, smart project design provides a timeless look that is long lasting. Green Buildings don’t have to look modern to be green. We try to blend the proportions and details of the past with the latest trends in building science.

We think all of these considerations should be balanced in the design and construction of every home. We think adding a focus on the health and well being of the occupants is worth all the confusion that having an “H” in the middle of BEHST has generated over the years. Give us a call today and let us see how we can help turn your dream home into a reality.
