About Sareth Builders

Sareth Builders is proud to design and build the finest sustainable homes available using the most energy efficient renewable materials and advanced construction techniques. We pay attention to important details that most other home designers and builders omit. Some of our key areas of focus are:

Family Functional & Universally Designed: Sareth Homes are created with multi-generational families in mind. The homes we build accommodate busy, activity filled lifestyles and are suitable to all demographics including children and family members with physical limitations. Wider doors and entries, appropriately placed switches and outlets, higher toilets, varied counter levels, curb-less shower entries, and much more all contribute to a home that works for its owners.

21st Century Technology & Architectural Elegance: We believe a home should be welcoming, comfortable, easy to live in, easy to maintain and beautiful. A home should be a special place where family wants to spend time, where memories are made and where guests want to visit. Sareth will model and build your home to achieve these important goals.

Energy Efficiency & Sustainability: Sareth homes employ many of the latest advancements in insulation and in-home environmental, mechanical and passive technology which results in significantly reduced energy consumption and cost while helping the environment by substantially reducing our carbon footprint. This goal is achieved through very thoughtful analysis, implementation and application using state of the art building materials and construction methods.

Repurposed Design Elements & Conservation: Whenever possible, Sareth uses architectural salvage recovered from vintage homes which is incorporated into our design elements. Our use of materials such as reclaimed antique glass windows as centerpieces in our homes bridges the gap between old and new resulting in stunning beauty.

Equity Partners & Self-Financing = Quality: Sareth Builders uses Private Equity to finance its building projects. We incur no debt and are not pressured to pay down bank loans which causes many builders to rush and take short cuts, often resulting in inferior product. Instead, Sareth will dedicate the time and resources needed to complete a project in the manner necessary to ensure it is as flawless as possible.
