What is an Eco Home?

What is an eco-home? Eco-homes are known by different names depending on the style, one of the most intriguing being the “earthship”. The concept behind an earthship came out of New Mexico, with the goal of using recycled materials and incorporating the landscape into the design for natural insulation and temperature regulation. Eco-homes can be built in many styles to fit each homeowner’s individual desire.


Redwood Homes is excited to participate in yet another housing solution. With our participation in the first eco-home finished and another build in progress, it’s easy to see the potential of these unique homes!


If you’re interested in seeing one in person don’t hesitate to reach out so we can schedule a tour!
