About our Team - Planning, Permitting, Engineering & Supervising Your Constructions Projects - YOUR WAY.
Gayle Scafe, the inventor of the concrete forming system we often use, is retired now and lives on his island in Belize in a house he made of concrete and conch shells with his wife, Dona, after many years in earth sheltered, underground and masonry construction building. Now as, their children, grandchildren and extended family, we carry on the traditions of building as many generations before us. We have long been a family of makers, planners, architects, artists and designers. We love building your beautiful projects!
What makes us different is that we work hard to manifest YOUR ideas with attention to the details, so you get what you want. Our design team develops and permits your project. Our traveling concrete construction crews can travel to your building site or coordinate with your local builder or support your DIY project. Giving you the fire and disaster resistant earth shelter, underground and above ground concrete structures that serve as the foundation for your more sustainable and eco-friendly projects. Whatever your style or preferences, we adapt our building systems to meet your needs.
