Lighting Your House for a Happy Planet and a Healthy Home

Lighting Your House for a Happy Planet and a Healthy Home

We regard lighting to be a crucial component of any sustainable building, which includes everything from the health of the inhabitants that live in it to the amount of energy it consumes.

While energy-efficient lighting is a simple and effective alternative for your home and your carbon footprint, it is important to consider the cheapest and most renewable source of healthy light, the sun. The challenge is to find ways to utilize the sun’s light inside your home throughout the day.

An intentionally well-designed new build or remodel can produce ample amounts of natural light. Well-placed windows, skylights, doors, (and one of our favorites) Solatubes allow in the sun’s light, even in your home’s darker spaces. Letting in natural light will lower your energy bills and contribute to happier and healthier lives.

If installing new windows, skylights, or Solatubes is not in your budget; there are cheaper alternatives that can help maximize light throughout your home. Choosing light-colored paints, shiny flooring like linoleum, and reflective materials for your walls and ceiling can create a lot of fluid light that will brighten up even the darkest of rooms.

Learn more about different lighting solutions in recent Mighty House projects, including this video from the 2021 NW Green Home Tour, showcasing Solatubes and the reasons for specific placement. Please reach out to us and let us know how we can help adapt your home to allow in the most natural light possible for a healthy, eco-friendly, and happy home.

State of the Industry: Two Years Later

State of the Industry: Two Years Later

MHC State of the Industry Two Years LaterIt’s crazy to think that we are coming up on the two-year anniversary of the pandemic pivot. We have been very fortunate that the construction industry has managed to move forward during and in the wake of statewide ebbs and flows. Although, we have not gone without our struggles — we continue to face labor shortages, concrete worker strike impacts, and intensive supply chain issues. Even in the midst of these complications, we look for opportunities to learn and come out stronger as a business, as a community, as a family, and as individuals.


While every day feels like a day closer to life pre-pandemic in our personal lives; the construction marketplace is still a very challenging place to be. We are committed to navigating any hurdle in front of us to make sure we live up to our core principles and deliver exceptional building practices, outstanding solutions to your home-building needs, and excellent customer fulfillment. Let us know how can we help you live, play, and grow in your home better.
When It Comes To The Smallest Details – Size Does Matter

When It Comes To The Smallest Details – Size Does Matter

MHC Butcher Block to QuartsFinish work is often about the smallest of details, and it takes the right carpenter with an extensive line of experience to execute it precisely. No matter how beautifully designed, this high level of detail work is the first thing that will catch any visitor’s eye when they walk into a room. Whether it is intricate tile work, crown molding, built-in custom cabinets, or live edge shelving, you will not regret taking the extra step to integrate this level of work into your new construction or remodel.

Most seasoned finish carpenters know the tricks of the trade about getting it right. This requires them to think quickly and adapt to any given situation. A successful finish carpenter also needs to have an eye for the work and dedication to making every single detail work. We pride ourselves on our fine craftsmanship, and we are committed to every project from start to finish – down to the very smallest detail.
