Home Episode 106: Why do American Homes Suck?
In this week's episode of The Build Show Podcast, Matt and YouTuber Matt Ferrell go deep into why American homes suck. 

The Matts dive into this controversial subject and explore why the building standards of American homes are so different from town to town, state to state, and other nations. They touch on the drives behind energy efficiency, America's take on moving and home ownership, and how homes in the States differ from those in Europe. 

They discuss whether it's better to build new or renovate, the value of consumer and builder education, and what the important decisions are when building a well-crafted forever home. 

Matt Ferrell is a lifelong tech enthusiast who explores smart and sustainable technology and shares his experiences and thoughts on his YouTube channel @UndecidedMF. Ferrell is currently building a Net Zero home in Massachusetts.
