High Performance Homes

TDS Custom Construction’s design and build services are especially adept in providing net zero and passive homes.

TDS Construction Mark

We believe in designing and building energy efficient and sustainable structures where the outcome is a healthy, comfortable, and durable building that benefits you and the environment.

  • Super insulated and air-sealed building envelopes–with the goal of minimal need for supplementary renewable energy sources
  • Significantly reduced energy usage and expenditures
  • A high level of indoor comfort and air quality
  • Durable and sustainable materials
  • Renewable energy, solar electric and geothermal as needed
  • Building performance, testing, analysis, and modeling

Whether you are looking to build a new home or retrofit an existing one, your project will be good for your health and the environment.

Buildings consume nearly half the energy produced and are responsible for almost half the CO2 emissions in the United States. We believe in doing everything we can as a construction company to reduce our buildings’ environmental impact. Healthy buildings provide occupant health, environmental health, and durability for generations to come.

High Performance New Home

Whether you want to build a super-efficient Passive House, are interested in a Net Zero Energy home, or just want a comfortable, durable and healthy “pretty good” new home, TDS is here to help. By employing high performance design and building techniques, TDS is ready to build your new home. In addition, we have a Universal Design Certified Professional and PHIUS certified builder on staff.

Net Zero Building

TDS has the ability to build homes with zero net energy consumption. What is zero energy building? Net zero homes consume very little energy and produce enough renewable energy to meet their own annual energy consumption. This is achieved primarily with super insulation, air sealing, optimum site orientation when possible, and of course a thoughtful and clever design.

Our Director of Design Christi Weber, became Wisconsin’s first Certified Passive House Consultant in 2012. She has been in the design field for 10+ years, specializing in residential projects, Passive House, Net-Zero, and High Performance homes.

Deep Energy Retrofits

Have an existing home and location that you love? With a deep energy retrofit, TDS can remodel your old home to new levels of comfort and efficiency. You can expect improved indoor air quality, thermal comfort, and durability. With over 35 years of experience remodeling and vast knowledge of home performance… we’re well equipped for the job.

High Performance Options

Net Zero Energy Home is a high performance home which is so energy efficient, that a renewable energy system can offset all or most of its annual energy consumption. Passive House refers to a rigorous, voluntary standard for energy efficiency in a building, reducing its ecological footprint. It results in ultra-low energy buildings that require little energy for space heating or cooling. A deep energy retrofit is a whole-building analysis and construction process that achieves much larger energy cost savings, sometimes more than 50% reduction, than those of simpler energy retrofits and fundamentally enhances the building value.
