Green Retrofits-Demolition-Reclaimed Products Division

In House Builders takes pride in the reuse and recycling of materials. We strive to salvage the maximum amount of material from existing homes, and then repurpose and utilize that material in a creative way. We utilize innovative and imaginative ways to incorporate reclaimed woods, materials and metals throughout our projects – this gives our finishes a unique and attractive flair, and supports our green ideals. In House Builders strives to use locally sourced materials; this eliminates long distance travel costs and enables us to be a competitive and more sustainable company. We take pride in our design, sourcing and installation of reclaimed and repurposed materials and enjoy the added design elements they bring to almost any project.




Structurally Insulated Panels (SIPs) Division

In House Builders is a leader in SIPs home construction in the Tahoe region. The use of SIPs construction provides our clients with a superior green building method – resulting in energy efficient homes that are warmer, stronger, and more suited to the Tahoe climate than traditional stick-framing systems. Utilizing the SIPs construction method allows In House Builders to provide their clients with an advanced product for the same cost of less-efficient traditional methods when labor savings are factored in. The use and application of this sustainable product in our homes is just one way In House is a leader in constructing energy efficient and green homes here in the Tahoe area.
