Aaron Sauerhoff

Aaron will not quit until all beings on earth have access to healthy, high-performing homes.
Growing up in New York, Aaron was exposed to many of the systemic challenges that face our built environment - form, function, toxicity, etc.
They developed a deep curiosity about the creation of sustainable buildings, and how they shaped people’s experiences of life. After seven years of intensive training as a pilot, he moved out to the Pacific Northwest to pursue his dream of becoming an ecological builder. After serving as project manager and finance officer for a small custom homebuilding company in the Seattle area at the age of 20, he undertook a series of internships and leadership positions in student organizations through his years at The Evergreen State College. In January 2019, at the age of 24, he fulfilled his dream of founding Earth Homes, an ecologically-oriented design-build firm in Olympia, WA, with a vision to effect radical reunion between natural and green building practices, and to help shape the future of the built environment. When not happily troweling clay plaster or giving direction on a job site, Aaron can be found in the meeting chambers of the Olympia Planning Commission, talking strategy at midnight with his community, flying small planes, or wearing moss around his neck as mayor of Ecotopia at the Cascadia NW Arts and Music Festival.
