We are having a HERS (Home Energy Rating System) completed out at the Homestead Acres house today. This involves an analysis of the homes energy efficiency in regards to the construction and plans of the home. This home was built with energy efficiency in mind using Structurally Insulated Panels instead of the traditional stick frame construction. Check out our SIPs page for more info on why they are a great option for home building! To learn more about a HERS test, go to click here. This house is nearly complete so here are some updates on the interior and exterior as well!
