When Peter Robie first met Ethan Korpi back in 2004, they shared a vision to build structures using sustainable and efficient methods made them bond instantly. Both Robie and Korpi were also trained in building and carpentry. They then created a division of Eco Sound Builders on the seacoast in 2008, an offshoot of the original business founded by Korpi and his father, Roger, in the Lakes and White Mountain region of New Hampshire.

The goal of Eco Sound Builders' is to build quality homes and buildings that are durable and sustainable throughout NH. Wood used for each project is sourced from Forest Stewardship Council and Sustainable Forestry Initiative certified forests. In addition, super-efficient insulation is used, and the subcontractors Robie works with specialize in using non-toxic paints and source their materials locally whenever possible.
