Featured Project:


Building the Greenest Homes for the Seattle Market

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

We all have our journeys of a thousand miles.  And we all have our first steps.  As you explore the MRC site, you'll find many steps here.  You'll see our past home-building projects.  You'll find our current projects.  You'll find resources that we use ourselves.  And you'll learn as we learn.  You'll share our discoveries, innovations and refinements as they happen as we build affordable, green homes.

You may have found your way here through a news article about Martha.  Or perhaps by the recommendation of a friend.  Or someone in the Green-building community.  Or perhaps by a search engine.  Regardless of how you came, it really only matters that you're here.  It's a first step.  And we're delighted you're taking it with us.

And should you end up living in one of our green-homes, all of this will resonate for you in an even more personal and useful way.  But even if, right now, you're not looking to buy a home, please know that this Martha Rose Construction site is for you.  Every day, we're all learning, and this site will hopefully reflect and expand on that growth.
