From award-winning historic restoration to the construction
of new, ecologically-sustainable and healthy homes,
we are committed to tightly-managed projects and accurate
budgets. As a custom home builder, Lithic's diverse portfolio ranges from the
rustic hut to the contemporary remodel to the full craftsman
house with stonescapes and outdoor rooms. We use best-building
practices, including passive and active solar, rainwater
collection, bio-based insulation, and sustainably-harvested
Virginia hardwoods, to name a few. Consultation and
design services are available.

We attempt to recognize all elements of the landscape
that might be threatened by the construction project,
and proceed to disturb them as minimally as possible.
We practice plant rescue. We identify and use any materials
generated from within the zone of inevitable disturbance.
We also encourage permaculture principles including
proper building orientation, rain gardens, and soil
