At Mighty House Construction we believe that you don’t need need radical change to make a radical shift in how you live, play, and grow in your home. Sustainable makeovers are about small, sticky changes that you can sink your teeth into and make a big difference.
Watch as Mighty House’s Co-Founder, Laura Elfline, presents at the Green Building Slam on this Spanish Bungalow in Madrona. What started as a simple kitchen remodel became a project that would enable a family to increase the livability of their home, enhance their energy conservation efforts, and balance the circle of life. Then, check-out more pictures from the project in our gallery.

When you work to conserve water at home, not only are you saving money on your bill, but you are also keeping water in our rivers for the salmon. This is especially important during the summer and fall, when our fish friends start their annual migration home. Want to bring your family to witness the salmon returning to spawn this fall?

As our business continued to grow over the past year, we began to find it more challenging to keep up with the detail-intensive processes of home remodeling projects. Since client satisfaction and quality are our top priorities, we decided to implement Co-Construct to help us better manage projects.
This software lets us keep track of schedules, budgets, subcontractors, and change orders. And it lets our clients see everything all in one place.
You can watch a full video demo of their software here.
