“George was chosen because of his integrity, creativity, attention to high quality work, design, and his understanding and application of energy efficient methods using alternative construction methods. George is a pioneer in the green building industry before the term "Green Building" evolved as a common day term today”
"George continues to research the latest in sustainable design, always thinking of what will make my off-the-grid cabin more comfortable, while simple and affordable.
George is a valued member of the community in which he lives, treating his customer as his next-door neighbor and friend." -Tom Hawley
"Our plans were to build a two story New Mexican Territorial house utilizing Rastra block for our main support and straw bale for infill with lots of custom features. Several home building contractors we talked to regarding such, just didn't get it. George did, and eagerly incorporated all our unique ideas and historical items into the finished product. It will stand as a work of art for years to come."
"My experience with George Scholz was excellent. He built my house in the mountains with a minimum of delays in spite of the difficulty in reaching my very remote location, and was very flexible to changes during construction. He offered several modifications that have proven to enhance the comfort and enjoyment of my house." -Ronald Wicks
"Have seen George's work in person, up close and through pictures. George has a well trained crew and easy to work with and can offer many perspectives on most building contracting jobs.
He built the first "Straw bale" home in our community, a bit small but very cozy and provides many of the environmental attributes that environmentalist and new knowledgeable families look for." - Dwane Durant
Sawtooth has done a lot of ICF form construction. ICF forms, Insulated Concrete Forms, are one of the best ways to build a green structure. High insulation values and protection from fire and mildew are just a few of the reasons customers like them. Perform wall/rastra forms are the ones we prefer. Cool in the hot summer months and warmer in the cold winter months. Walk into an ICF building on a hot day or a cold day and feel the difference. Call or email us for a demonstration. If you live where fire is a concern you need to know about our ICF structures.
