Welcome

The Salamander Co. LLC. is a family owned business. We have been building beautiful Straw Bale homes in the Taos area since 1998.  As we have grown in our experience we have come to believe that building in a sustainable way is as much about the esthetics of a home as it is the materials used. By using regionally produced materials from straw bales and adobe bricks, to small scale forested Douglas Fir we are able to strike a healthy balance between sustainable building materials and mainstream building products.  A natural curiosity and practical knowledge have helped us to discover techniques and procedures that yield homes that are warm and inviting, and also perform well.

Over the years we have expanded to include custom cabinetry, woodwork, and mosaic tile work.  Renovations and additions are a specialty as well.  We enjoy each phase of the process of building and are always open to new ideas and materials.  Efficiency, comfort and beauty are what our clients expect from us and we work hard to deliver.

Please look through our portfolio and feel free to contact us with any thoughts or questions you may have.

Thank you for visiting.
