Zane M Goodwin

 Founder, Building scientist, CPHB

Zane came into the building industry from the investment side. Starting in wholesale(acquiring and selling investment properties) quickly turned into flipping homes. It was here that Zane fell in love with the construction process. Flipping homes that were nearly 100 years old, Zane got to see first hand a history of home building and more importantly what did not work over time(READ: what failed!). Ravenously researching day in and out and falling in love with ensuring that what he built would not have the same rotted fate as what he was replacing led him to the dark and nerdy world or Building Science. Now his focus is on material sustainability and the science behind what makes a home healthy allowing home dwellers to positively benefit and thrive in life. 

Zane concurrently serves as the US Passive House Alliance’s representative to the Southeast and is 1 of 3 Certified Passive House Builders in Georgia. He is proudly a US Army Infantry Veteran.

Joel C. Thornton

Operations Manager, Building Scientist, CPHB

Joel found his way into the construction industry after graduating from college in 2016 while helping his family restore his great-grandfather’s century-old farmhouse in rural Virginia. He quickly fell in love with the satisfaction and wholesomeness that came from working with his hands. His love for building didn’t end there, however. His fascination with off-grid, energy-independent homes and interest in energy-efficient buildings led him to the world of Building Science. When he wasn’t on jobsites building homes, he was learning and researching how to make homes more efficient, healthy, and durable. After spending four years building homes in Virginia, Joel returned to his hometown of Atlanta in 2020 to continue building the finest homes possible while pursuing his master’s degree in Building Construction from Georgia Tech. 

Joel is 1 of 3 Certified Passive House Builders in Georgia.
