Challenge Homes in the Hot-Humid Climate

In curation License 

The Building America Partnership for Improved Residential Construction (BA-PIRC), one of the Building America research team leads, has partnered with two builders as they work through the Challenge Home certification process in one test home each. The builder partners participating in this cost-shared research are Southeast Volusia County Habitat for Humanity near Daytona, Florida and Manatee County Habitat for Humanity near Tampa, Florida. Both are affiliates of Habitat for Humanity International, a non-profit affordable housing organization. This research serves to identify viable technical pathways to meeting the CH criteria for other builders in the region. A further objective of this research is to identify gaps and barriers in the marketplace related to product availability, labor force capability, code issues, cost effectiveness, and business case issues that hinder or prevent broader adoption on a production scale.

The builder partners participating in this cost-shared research are Southeast Volusia County Habitat for Humanity (SEVHFH) near Daytona, Florida and Manatee County Habitat for Humanity (MCHFH) near Tampa, Florida. Both are affiliates of Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI), a nonprofit affordable housing organization.
