Last Sunday, Semmes and Co. Builders held a workshop at the Santa Ynez Strawbale home. There were many community members, architects and friends of the homeowner in attendance. We would not pass up the opportunity to share this hands-on educational experience with eager minds. Also, the sense of community fostered is really priceless. If you would like to know about our upcoming events, just let us know, we would love to have you!


Semmes & Co. Builders designed and is constructing this home to be as free of off-gassing chemicals as possible. It is always our mission to maintain the healthiest interior air quality when building, but with the critical chemical sensitivity of this client, we are challenged to go farther beyond even our standard practice.  The information on VOC off-gassing is available for every sealer, adhesive and composite you may put in your home; all you have to do is ask the question.
