Couple makes smart energy use a priority when building new home

Owners of the first Focus on Energy Certified New Home built in Florence County since 2012, Jeff and Karen Forbes are excited to share information with anyone interested in improving home energy efficiency.

 

When Jeff and Karen Forbes decided to build a new home, the couple took the lead and served as their own general contractors. They built a home that is not only beautiful, but also extremely energy efficient.

The Forbes are the owners of the first Focus on Energy® Certified New Home built in Florence County since 2012, with their commitment to energy efficiency producing a home that is an impressive 38% more efficient than required by state building code. As a result, the home is more comfortable, durable and energy efficient than the typical Wisconsin home.
