Meet the Owner
Corey Gerlach has more than 20 years experience in the green building industry.
In 1993, Corey earned his B.A. in Environmental Science from the University of Virginia. After graduating, he married his two passions – sustainable living and building. He hired on with a small, local building company to gain practical experience and simultaneously began to research green building design and construction. Three years later, he built the first iteration of his own home, incorporating many of the green building elements he had read about, including a recast foundation, insulated concrete floors, a 5,000 gallon rainwater collection and storage system, solar hot water and passive solar. In 2000, Corey started Sugar Hollow Builders, a company devoted to environmentally sensitive design and construction.
