Casey Building Solutions, LLC is a small design/build firm located in Cascade, Iowa that believes in the “House as a System” approach. This approach says that all parts of the home must work in unison to allow the home to be energy efficient, durable, safe, comfortable, affordable, and maintain good indoor air quality. To be successful, this approach requires careful consideration of all of the building components, including building envelope, structure, mechanical systems and HVAC, and materials, and their relationship to each other. We build home with HERS scores generally between 30 and 45 and most of our homes heat and cool for under $500 per year.
Lot choice, building orientation, and plan layout can greatly affect the building’s performance, yet are rarely considered in enough detail to enhance the performance of our buildings. Today’s structures are too complex to use the “rule of thumb” standard of building and evaluating homes. Proper design using building science will help create a home that is energy efficient, comfortable, durable, and have good indoor air quality.
Casey Building Solutions, LLC offers both consulting and construction services that integrate continuing education with over 15 years of building experience. We can help plan your next project, provide building or remodeling services, and provide the performance testing necessary to ensure that your building performs as designed. We specialize in highly energy efficient homes so we use Advanced framing technique, Insulated Concrete Forms, Structural Insulated Panels, and specialized heating and cooling techniques to reach the performance desired. Each home plan is different so we alter the materials and techniques use to make your home reach its perfomance design. We offer home planning and design services as well as energy modeling. We can design, draw, and build your project from conception to completion.
