Earth Friendly Building Materials, LLC (EFBM) is owned and operated by Dan and Sue Ellen Chouinard. Dan has been in construction since 1969 when he started framing with his father, Ernie Chouinard, and American Framers, LLC. Dan started construction with CMU (Concrete Masonry Unit), switched to wood-frame construction, and then in 1994 started looking at several alternative building materials due to the quantity and quality of wood products available. Dan has complete knowledge of construction through general contracting in both residential and commercial fields. Dan and his son, Jason, partnered in 1994 to form Earth Friendly Building Materials and sell RASTRATM and PerformWallTM as environmentally friendly solutions to building. The desire for quality had led them away from using wood as the only means for construction.
Earth Friendly Building Materials was the exclusive dealer for PerformWallTM in Arizona for 15 years. During that time, innovative variations of the PerformWallTM concept were established, but few carried the ICBO seal of approval. In recent years, however, those innovations have matured and achieved ICBO status. These locally manufactured alternatives are now a viable source of affordable materials at a time when fuel and shipping costs have reached an all-time high. EFBM distributes APEX BlockTM and is spearheading the production of EF BlockTM as a locally produced alternative. We are also offering affordable plant licenses to investors who wish to establish and EF BlockTM plant and distribute EF BlockTM in their areas. In addition, we also promote Earth Friendly DoorsTM and innovative products, like SureCrete Design Products, which enhance custom construction. EFBM has a network of qualified sales representatives statewide. Together, Earth Friendly’s experienced sales staff offers complete sales and service for all of our products. We provide materials lists, unloading, on-the-job training at one of our sites, and we’ll even send a man to your site. Earth Friendly Building Materials has been working with the Green Building Program in the city of Scottsdale, Arizona. It is a sponsor of the American Lung Association home at Civano in the city of Tucson, Arizona. EFBM has also helped other communities reduce the environmental impact of residential and commercial construction.
To empower the consumers by providing earth friendly building materials, along with the training needed, to complete construction; and to promote an alternative approach to building that has a positive impact on our planet today and for generations to come.
To create the means that encourages experimentation and growth by providing the necessary tools, opportunities, and knowledge; and to promote relationships that do not end with the project.
