Happy National Beavers Day: How High Performance Builders Mimic Nature’s Most Ingenious Architects

As high performance builders, we are always seeking ways to improve our craft and create homes that are more efficient, resilient, and sustainable. But when it comes to designing and constructing homes that work in harmony with the environment, we have the best mentor: nature itself. On National Beaver Day, we celebrate the incredible resourcefulness and ingenuity of beavers, whose natural building techniques have inspired some of the most forward-thinking builders to create homes that are more energy-efficient, resilient, and adaptable.
