In addition to designing your home, Ron, Jon and the EarthCraft staff will oversee the costing of your project, ensuring the construction team is well oriented to the plans and details and that prices are in alignment with the original budget. You can always trust that from first sketch to final walk-through, serving our clients is our highest priority.
Every EarthCraft client receives a Specification Manual for their project before any building commences. This manual documents all the building materials, products and workmanship that are included in the plans and budget. You will know exactly what materials have been used in your home, in writing, as well as manufacturer's warranties and specifications. This, in addition to EarthCraft's one year warranty, give the added assurance you deserve when embarking on the building process.

After serving in the Marine Corps, Jon Clark began a career in building with the goal to learn as much as he could, as efficiently as possible. He started out as a managing partner with a commercial painting company. Within two years the business tripled in size. Projects included the 135ft tall Smoothie King Arena, in New Orleans.
From there he mentored with a second generation master carpenter, developing a deep appreciation for a lifetime’s experience in the trades. Following his interest in green building he contacted Mark at EarthCraft Construction to learn more. In 2018 he relocated from Louisiana to Boise, Idaho to begin working with and learning from Mark directly.
