A square and level floor system ensures that everything will be spot on as we continue to work our way up. We are also trying something new for this build.  Instead of our typical double stud wall design, we had the 2×6 walls panelized with Zip System Insulated R-Sheathing to add an additional R6 and speed construction.

We are almost ready for insulation. All rough inspections have passed and the LEED Green Rater completed their inspections.

Join us March 28th at 5:30 pm for our presentation at Louie’s Bar and Grille! The presentation is part of a series organized by the Southwest Michigan Sustainable Business Forum called Green Drinks. Every month they invite a speaker to make an informal presentation about various environmental topics, and they have invited us to share our story about building one of Soutwest Michigan’s greenest homes.
