Energy efficient home tested at Quinhagak

Posted: Tuesday, September 28, 2010

ANCHORAGE - Construction is expected to take about a month in Quinhagak for a prototype of a highly energy efficient home.

KTUU-TV reports the Cold Climate Housing Research Center flew construction supplies Friday to the village in the Bethel region about 400 miles west of Anchorage.

Heavy rain has caused many typical homes in the area to rot. Center architects designed the prototype with the village council. The house has a new type of insulation and adjustable walls to match weather conditions in the area.
