National Geographic recognizes recent design

Traditional New England design with 40% lower fuel bills. Mentioned in Oct.’08 National Geographic

Does this look like a project with energy efficiency at its core?   High “R” Value insulation, air-tightness level and super efficient heating/cooling equipment create a project that uses 40% less fuel than code.  This efficient project is discussed in 7/2008 special climate change issue of National Geographic.  All the energy upgrades used available skills and materials and added little to the overall cost helping to keep the budget right on target.
