When you're building your dream home, you need a plan. Without a plan, you run the risk of discovering three months down the road that something crucial slipped your mind. E3’s Design and Consulting team will work with you before you start your project and provide a roadmap to help you invest your time and resources most efficiently and effectively. We work as homeowner advocates to make sure your dream home is as beautiful as it is healthy ad comfortable. 

Energy modeling, code compliance, HVAC sizing, daylight optimization, moisture management, and more.


Our Project Planning services generally start with an energy model conducted by our professionals, which will help optimize the building design and prioritize investment in the areas that will yield the greatest results. We can help you create a high performance home with appropriate insulation materials, air sealing, moisture management systems, and more. Additionally, we can optimize your space to get the most out of renewable energy technology, including geothermal and solar technology.

E3 has been in the home performance industry since 2008 and is always on the lookout for the best materials, strategies, and technology. We determine exactly what you need to meet your performance goals and make recommendations on the best technology on the market, whether it be a variable speed compressor HVAC unit, a high-efficiency heat pump water heater, a smart thermostat, or just a simple air sealing package from our team of qualified technicians. E3 INNOVATE will make sure that you get the best value and greatest results for your money.


Your home is a large investment—don’t you want it to stand the test of time?  Across the country, architects and builders are working to create more resilient structures, capable of withstanding bigger and more frequent extreme weather events, greater temperature fluctuations, and other problems associated with climate change. E3 has the project planning expertise and tools to help design and build more durable structures or retrofit existing homes to increase resilience.  Regardless of your budget, E3’s many home performance services will increase the value of your home and protect it for years to come.

Universal Design

As the Baby Boomer population matures, consumers are showing greater demand for homes accessible regardless of age or ability. According to AARP, older homeowners want to age in place, meaning they want to continue to live in their current homes as they grow older. Universal design seeks to create spaces inclusive of all people, through practices such as optimizing doorways and hallways to accommodate wheelchairs comfortably. Using our knowledge of advanced technologies and building practices, we can provide the best plan for implementing these design elements in a way that fits your project. 

Having completed the NAHB’s rigorous training and certification program, E3 Founder Erik Daugherty is an NAHB Certified Aging-In-Place Specialist (CAPS) and will work with you to incorporate universal design in your project.  We provide valuable insight for architects and builders looking to enter the universal design and accessible building market, and we will work with you from start to finish to ensure that the job is done right.​
