Who is Paul Brundell?

Green Thumb, Green Design

This ranch home is a design & build project we worked on closely with our client. Before construction, we guided the design and specification process. Its superb Energy Star and HERS ratings mean it’s efficient and environmentally conscious.

The location is a quiet SE Cedar Rapids neighborhood that’s in town but feels like a forest. We made the most of that by highlighting the calming wooded views. Unique features include a custom greenhouse and a wood-working shop.
