Cheryl Heinrichs Architecture


Committed to being experts in the design of extremely sustainable homes, steeped in building science led us to obtain extensive knowledge in all aspects of sustainable methods and materials. Most of our learning is outside the classroom, as needed, per project. But, when we see a class or conference that looks superb, we attend. Below are some of the course and conferences we’ve attended, as well as a class we taught.
