founder / co-owner

When I was a teenager, my dad couldn’t keep me away from the building site. I started working for his construction company at 15 while taking night classes through the running start program. I love the process of drafting a family’s dream home and turning it into a real home. Building Net zero carbon homes adds another level of purpose and sustainability. When I am not building, I like to go on adventures with my three kids, skiing, biking and camping.

Carpenter / co-owner

I have always loved working with my hands. I built my first cabin when I was 14. Its still there; on my dad’s homestead in southeast Ak. I always craved the ability to build sustainable homes. To do what I love in a way that benefits the earth and future generations just feels right. When I’m not planting trees in the back yard then I’m adventuring in the mountains or on the ocean with my two daughters and my lovely wife. I certainly live a charmed life.

My name is Dan. I grew up on an off-grid homestead on the SW Oregon coast, but Washington has been home since 2014. I moved here to work with TC Legend Homes and learn the Net-Zero process which is changing the industry. In my free time I like to hike local mountains, grill and smoke foods with my Traeger, fabricate with steel, or wander the national parks with my wife.

Seeing a home come together from a blank piece of property is my favorite part of the building process. Every property has its own potential. Each successive step of building, from design to finish presents its own incremental definitions on the finality of a structure. That change is my favorite part. To see an idea, with all of its potential greatness and flaws manifest into a physical object is interesting to me. When I’m not working for T.C, I make and teach functional ceramics. Thinking about all aspects of a construction project, from the foundation to the roof relate directly to building pottery. Building a pot from the bottom and thinking of the interior structure and it’s relationship to the exterior, how it will be glazed, placed in the kiln, what function that object may serve, down to the minutiae of how well a lid fits. All of these aspects of ceramic craft are very present in building a home from start to finish. For me one craft informs the other. My career as a builder informs my art, and my career as an artist informs my career as a builder.

DESIGN PROJECT MANAGER & BIM SPECIALIST

I have always been interested in building design, architecture, the environment, and renewable energy. When I had the opportunity to combine those interests in the form of an undergraduate course called Energy Efficient and Carbon Neutral Design, I jumped at the chance. After that course, I caught the net zero building bug. I’m excited to be making an impact on people’s lives and our environment through designing comfortable, affordable, and efficient homes as a member of the TC Legend Homes team! When not working on house designs, I enjoy trail running, climbing, skiing, and spending time with friends and family.

Designer

I draw plans. The best days progress our housing model towards greater energy efficiency. Either with new shapes, technology, materials, or ways of occupying these enclosures. The next day we push it further. I hold a BA in architecture from Manchester School of Architecture and recognize that design & build companies like TC Legend can produce the most cost-effective and sophisticated eco-housing because of the close working relationship between designers and constructors. Occasionally I get out of the office to bend some nails, run a digger, and hang out with the fellas, who are wonderful guys. Like all TC folks, I run, ski, kayak, climb, etcetera in the Cascades and try to be home in time for dinner.

CARPENTER

I grew up in the PNW spending most of my time outdoors and nothing has changed sense. I love to go camping, hiking, backpacking and anything to get me outside. When I’m not outdoors I’m working with my hands  to build something new in my wood shop . With such a great appreciation for the great outdoors it is important to me to preserve it for future generations and live more sustainably.

Sarah

Editor

I have always had a love for writing and the writing process. I hold a Master of Arts in Teaching, with an emphasis in literacy, from Lewis and Clark Graduate School of Education. As a classroom teacher, teaching the writing process and reading students’ work was one of my favorite aspects of the job. I am super excited to be joining the TC team, as their Editor. Aside from editing, I am a busy Mom raising two teenage daughters and tending to our little homestead. My husband and I built our home, on a beautiful 5 acres, where we strive to live a sustainable lifestyle. Our property sits alongside a network of trails, where I can often be found
taking our rambunctious yellow lab for walks in the woods.

PROJECT MANAGER

With a degree in Environmental Science from Western Washington University, my passion belongs to everything nature based. I found a special love for green building that has allowed my innovative and creative sides to flow, while also tapping into my interest in sustainability. Prior to TC Legend, I come with experience office managing and working with clients from start to finish to make their eco-dream house become a reality. When I am not working, I enjoy painting, exploring the outdoors, combing the intertidal zones and snuggling up with my cat Dakota.

carpenter

Although I am relatively new to construction, I’ve always been building and crafting. I’m very detail-oriented and always thinking about how to make something work or work better. My fascination with net-zero construction stems from loving our unique environment and wanting to protect it. As a teen, my first job was at the local ski & bike shop where I learned to fix equipment, and enjoy ALL the typical PNW sports. Enjoying the outdoors and taking care of it is a core value. I have an MA in education, and have spent the last few decades learning and teaching. 

Let's Talk

Our entire team is dedicated to building homes that power themselves. No emissions and no fossil fuels needed.
