Schedule an Appointment with Kristina Munroe

While Twisted Oak was under construction, many curious folks asked to see the house. After completion, the tours and interest in the home continued, and many visitors asked for more information about the systems and the construction. Others asked when the book would be coming out. The book, Twisted Oak, was written in an attempt to answer the plethora of questions typically asked during a tour of the house. 

Kristina launched Twisted Oak Consulting in response to the comment made during nearly every tour of Twisted Oak: “I would love to build a house like this, but I don’t have the expertise.” This engineering consulting practice is designed to offer support and expertise to clients who wish to take the next step in building, buying, or modifying their homes and lives to create a more sustainable footprint and future.  


Kristina offers one-on-one sustainable living consultations either by phone, Facetime, or Skype.
