Home Episode 27: How to Design an Efficient and Durable House Right from the Start
On this episode of The Build Show Podcast, Matt and Steve Baczek team up to mull over a very important question: how do we design a good quality, efficient, durable house that’s going to be long lasting – right from the start?

As a builder, Matt often gets plans in various stages of completion, sometimes fully finished plans that cause him to wonder how he’s going to build in a way that keeps clients out of trouble. Whether that's water management, energy efficiency, durability, or comfort, he’s seen plenty of plans that are not well thought out and must put all the pieces of the puzzle together.

Steve adds his perspective as an architect, noting that building a house comes with thousands of decisions, some of them assumed, but everything has to be planned out. The question he likes to as homeowners is: who do you want to do that planning?

The two will chat about previous experiences and best practices that they’ve learned along the way.
