Introducing the EcoNest Boot Camp

This six week accelerated skill builder will begin before the EcoNest 16 day intensive, include all of the EcoNest Intensive workshops and Seminar, and continue after. Students will develop and hone building skills from foundation to roof framing, completing the shell of a small EcoNest under the direct guidance of Robert Laporte and his staff.

Biography of New EcoNest Affiliate Chris Koehn

Chris Koehn built his first timber frame for his family in 1990. He is a lifetime member of the Timber Framers Guild and began his own business on Vancouver Island called TimberGuides. We are pleased to welcome Chris as our newest affiliate and we’re happy the feeling is mutual.

“We are excited to be affiliated with the EcoNest Company. We share values, and in many ways our partnership represents a summary of how we feel about the homes we build,” said Chris.

Happy Thanksgiving!

We wish all of our EcoNest friends and family a happy and healthy Thanksgiving. We personally have much to be grateful for this year. Our home in Ashland Oregon on Paradise Lane is almost closed in. We spent a few precious days in our little EcoNest cottage on Salt Spring Island which is now complete. We are healthy and happy and enjoying our new friends and community in Ashland. We are looking forward to a new and exciting year of teaching and building together. We look forward to hosting many of you in our new home.
