Homeowner Resources

This section contains documents of particular interest to homeowners. Many of these articles describe case studies from BSC’s work with Building America, a research program funded by the U.S. Department of Energy to design and construct quality homes that use less energy without costing more to build. More information is available from the U.S. Department of Energy's website.

For assistance with some of the technical terms you may encounter, please see the BSC Glossary. Our Information Sheets are also a great resource for building technical knowledge.
