An exclusive provider of energy efficient LavaCrete aggregate products


High Desert Earthworks builds quality custom homes using a unique blend of materials that, simply put, are not available to other builders in our area. We are different. Beginning with the structural integrity of the home, the exteriors are constructed using an aggregate mix of lava rock and dry Portland Cement slurry with base materials (Scoria, Granite, Silica, and Red Cinder) that are sourced very near us in Northern Arizona. This, coupled with passive energy concepts such as strategic landscaping and shade coverings, can reduce heat gain in homes by up to 70%.
