RH Irving Home Builders

R.H. Irving is one of New Hampshire’s (NH) most experienced home builders. We are Contractors who are skilled in a wide variety of energy efficient and sustainable construction techniques, including low energy construction, super insulation, triple glazed windows, air sealing, heat reclaiming ventilation systems, designs that utilize natural daylight and passive solar heat, panelized stick framing, and post & beam construction.

What began as a barn and home remodeling business in 1972 evolved within a few years to a business that specialized in building timber frame homes. From the late 70s through the 80s, we built over fifty super insulated timber frame homes, most of which we enclosed with stress skin panels (SIP’s).

We turned to standard “stick” construction in the late 80s when we found that the market for true energy efficient construction had all but disappeared, but continued to build houses that were correctly oriented and brought sunlight into the living areas. Now, after thirty years of market forces and government policies encouraging builders to ignore climate change and green building practices, energy conservation is back in the forefront. People are once again asking for energy efficient and passive solar homes, and our expertise in this area is once again in high demand.

Since buildings use over 40% of energy consumed in this country, homebuilders have a unique opportunity to contribute to reducing our fuel usage by utilizing proven techniques to make houses more energy efficient. By doing so the house becomes more comfortable and easier and more affordable to maintain. Every efficiency improvement implemented today reduces the amount of energy needed tomorrow.
“Passive House” construction is one method of getting there. This fast growing movement is a scientific approach used to build ultra low-energy homes.

Our reputation was built on the quality of our finish work. We believe that whatever the level of trim in the home it should be done professionally by specialized tradesmen using quality (not “builder grade”) materials.
