What Our Clients Say
I attended a workshop Ace did on straw bale construction at Solar Fest in Vermont in 2008 and was impressed with the attention to detail and the methods he was using to attach the windows and door frames to the straw bales to ensure heat retention in the building and to prevent unwanted cold air entering the building. After several phone conversations and a face to face meeting, I decided to hire New Frameworks as my straw bale wall and flooring contractor.
I am so happy with the craftsmanship and skill of Ace and his company. I so enjoy living in my beautiful space that they created!Mary Ellen Blakey
