The house, at 2215 W. 27th St. in Joplin, is being called "reproducible."
"And, talking about reproducible, affordable," said Frank Schaffer.
Frank Schaffer is the owner of the energy efficient home and president of F.E. Schaffer Construction.
His mother lived in a house on the lot that was destroyed in the May 2011 tornado. The Schaffer's home was also destroyed. When Schaffer's mom moved to Springfield, he and his wife decided to build on the land.
According to Schaffer, everything in the house is highly energy efficient even down to the LED lightbulbs.
The home incorporates a complete Thermal Enclosure System with comprehensive air sealing, quality installed insulation, high-performance windows and a high efficiency heating, ventilating and cooling system.
He says it's something most anyone could do.
"You're probably looking at a ten percent increased cost up front to reproduce this home, you know, based on the appraisal value per square foot," he said.
Schaffer worked with Missouri Gas Energy on the project. MGE is sponsoring an open house tomorrow to allow the public to tour the home and learn about affordable products that save money and energy and about better building practices certified by Energy Star 3.0. The open house is tomorrow (7/27) from 11 to 2 at the home, 2215 W. 27th St.
