We are modern, forward-thinking custom builders. An award-winning firm with a diverse team, we specialize in distinguished residential and commercial construction, remodeling and green building.
Founded in 2005 in Orlando, FL, E2 Homes is owned and managed by Rob Smith, CGC and LEED AP. A native of Central Florida, Smith has a B.S.in Economics and a Master in Environmental Studies from the University of Pennsylvania. His wife Denise Smith is the firm’s licensed Registered Landscape Artist (RLA). A graduate of Purdue University, she is also LEED AP. The firm has won over a dozen industry awards, including several LEED Project of the Year designations from the US Green Building Council (USGBC). In 2012, the firm built a net-zero energy home and became the first builder in the country to obtain a prestigious Department of Energy home certification. In 2017, E2 was honored with an award for building the state’s first ever LEED home to receive a v4 Certification. The firm’s work has been featured in TecHome Builder, Orlando Home & Garden, Fine Homebuilding, Winter Park Magazine and Dwell.
Giving back to build
a stronger community.
We believe in using our talents and resources to help strengthen and grow those around us, and we’re committed to partnering with area organizations and institutions to give back.
Notably, we served as the general contractor for the Emeril Lagasse Foundation Kitchen House and Culinary Garden. This unique space provides a hands-on, garden-to-table experience that helps to educate students and the community about healthy eating and sustainable living. Additionally, E2 has partnered with Habitat for Humanity of Seminole County & Apopka for the past several years, participating in several Home Builders Blitz events, and we’ve donated management and installation services to improve an area school’s playground.
We’re also proud supporters of the Africa Windmill Project, Jewish Family Services (JFS) , Neighbors Network and REBUILD Globally.
