Who: EcoSound Builders LLC

What: Originally started by father-and-son team Roger and Ethan Korpi in 2007, EcoSound Builders specializes in Eco-concious home building and long-term durability.  With the addition of green building specialist Peter Robie, the company soon stretched itself to become one of the foremost sustainability builders in both the Lakes Region and on the Seacoast.

Utiliziing the latest in green resources, technology and waste-eliminating building methods, EcoSound has built sustainably throughout New Hampshire.  From timber-framed barns, to residential homes, to office space retrofits, EcoSound specializes in using local materials, sourcing wood from FSC and SFI certified forests and using low to no VOC paints, stains and finishes.  EcoSound also builds projects that are suited for environmental conditions, such as long winters and exposed building sites, and believes in the preservation of older buildings with high performance renovations.
