Design/Build your sustainable, affordable, net-plus dream home. We offer state of the art design that far exceeds LEED standards.

From complete redesign to creating sunrooms and outside decks, remodeling adds architectural value while substantially reducing energy costs.

Build your business to last, sustainably. Above is the highly energy-efficient, rammed earth building that is home to Prescott Dentistry in Prescott, Arizona.

With today’s advanced internet technologies, Living Systems can work with you anywhere. Above are plans for the The OBF Cultural and Educational Center in Lagos, Nigeria.


“I have known Michael Frerking for over 15 years and consider him to be one of the true leaders in the field of passive solar, energy efficient building design and construction. His homes are way ahead of any of the energy rating systems, including Energy Star and LEEDS for Homes. Keep up the good work, Michael.”    -Robert Berkebile, BNMN Architects, Kansas City

“We are approaching the final months of construction on our fabulous new “net-zero” home: one that will produce more energy and water than needed. We want to thank Michael and John of Living Systems for making this process both exciting and enjoyable from start to finish. We have finally achieved our dream home.”

“Michael is a genius! Not only is my home extraordinarily beautiful…. it is super energy efficient… exceeding any LEED rating! I would also recommend Michael’s design/build approach as Living Systems was able to design and build my home on time and on budget…. something most contractors are unable to do!”    -Johnnie Hurn

“Michael Frerking and Living Systems Sustainable Architecture are designing and building homes that incorporate technology years beyond anything else that is commonly seen in the domestic home building market.” (From Green Building & Design magazine, 2012)
