What does it look like behind the walls of the first mainstream Zero Energy Home in Greenville SC?
That’s a question Greenville HBA’s Sales & Marketing Council asked – and Addison Homes answered! On Tuesday, November 11 Builders and Agents met at Addison’s model home in Trailside for a “pre-drywall tour“. Construction is currently under way, so this educational event was all about taking a look at the energy-efficient products and processes you won’t see again once the walls go up. Todd Usher, president of Addison Homes, provided an overview of the house as a system; in addition, representatives from vendors including Dow Solar, Velux, Icynene, Prime Energy Group and Wood Insulating were on hand to answer questions about their products.
