Clean homes. Clean earth.

We build for you. Creating happy faces.

Come to a clean home, it’s your choice.

Complete peace of mind.

Experience the difference.

My home cleaned my way.

An ecohouse (or eco home) is an environmentally low-impact home designed and built using materials and technology that reduces its carbon footprint and lowers its energy needs.

This includes:
Glass that has two or three layers with gas in between to prevent heat loss
Solar panels
Geothermal heating and growing plants on the roof to regulate temperature, quieten the house, and to produce oxygen
A wind turbine for when there is wind, and a battery if not

This is resistance. And it’s cause for celebration. It means that changes are happening.

“Your body is going through a change and you’re interpreting it as either positive or negative. Really, what you should do is get excited about it. The change that needs to happen in order for your new habits to take form is taking hold. It’s taking hold inside your body,” says Todd. “The most difficult part of the journey is the first sixteen days, but then after that, it’s a piece of cake. We don’t need to think about it anymore. It goes from conscious mind to our unconscious, or habit mind, where it’s happening automatically for us. It’s like a wave of positivity that just starts flooding towards you but most people don’t see it right away. That happens later.”
So, instead of shutting down the new habits when they start to feel unpleasant, we need to shift our attitude towards loving the resistance that arises. Because if we can push through the awkward growth spurt—giving our cells adequate time to catch up with our good intentions—we gain prodigious momentum. Keep on keeping on.
Have you lost momentum on your otherwise well intentioned regular yoga practice? You know it is often exactly what you need (and your kids/husbands/wives/friends agree), but you just seem to have lost steam. This is resistance! Something good is happening…One way to support yourself while your cells recalibrate is by buying an auto renew membership. Pay a discounted price once a month for unlimited classes to encourage you to go more often and keep at it. For the month of March we are offering $10 off your first month when you sign up for an auto renew membership.
