Bygghouse is a building technology company focused on commercializing Scandinavian approaches to energy performance in buildings.

Our Mission

“Coming in From the Cold” (1985) was the first published work to recognise how builders in Sweden had improved the overall average energy performance of housing. Bygghouse exists to translate these construction ideas into products and systems that work for American and Canadian builders.

We Are

Scott Hedges
Accidentally moved to Sweden and realized that he wasn’t in Kansas anymore. He’s convinced that we are ready to come in from the cold. With a range of experiences that include time on the tools, and ten years managing complicated environmental projects in some very redneck places, he’s now married to a girl from New Jersey. Near exit 7a.
Greg La Vardera
Best known for affordable modern house plans, has designed the Lagom House, Nordic Layered Walls and feels he is every bit as Swedish as Jean-Baptiste Bernadotte or Gabriel De la Gardie. Yeah, he’s from new Jersey. Problem with that?
Joe Alligood
You have to know how to put a house together before you start giving out advice on how to put a house together. Joe’s got that covered for us. He understands the problems that ByggHouse is trying to solve for you, because he’s had them too.
