Meet Win Trafton
As a child Win Trafton would spend his summers at a cabin in the woods of Maine. His mom would take him and his sisters to make the trek to Maine for the entire summer. His love for the environment was born having “grown up” here with no running water, or electricity. He often would find the time flying by enjoying all that nature had to offer. Looking back he’s discovered that what he loved the most was the simplicity those 16 summers at the cabin and the way of life it offered.
Win bridges his philosophy of “Simplified Living” with his mechanical engineering background. Win holds a Master degree in Product Development from Rochester Institute of Technology. As a Systems Architect, with over 20 years in product development and research at Kodak he understands how to integrate the most sustainable systems with the style of living that the client desires.
Win seeks to improve lifestyles through the understanding and integration of technology in the homestead. He has a passion for the community and a commitment to “Net Zero Energy Balance.” Win believes in the preservation of character, and charm within the home. He first looks at the character of the home, the family living within it, and their aspirations. He then considers the environmental effect of lowering energy use, and then develops/integrates sustainable living solutions that best meet the needs of his clients.
As a reflective Practitioner he lives this out with offices in both in Rochester, NY and Wilton, NH. Mr. Trafton’s historic farmhouse restoration in New Hampshire is living proof of his belief that sustainable living is possible while maintaining the integrity of architecture. His plan is to make this house fully energy sustainable.
