Finding a Builder

alowson | Posted in General Questions on

Hi all, I’m looking for a builder in the Houghton, MI area who can build a high-performance net-zero(ish) house on the shores of Lake Superior. I have designs from an architect (who does passive house and net-zero designs), but the builder I had lined up bailed when his HVAC sub would do it because it called for a heat pump and not a furnace. Ugh.
Any suggestions on associations for me to contact to find the right builder would be appreciated.

    Paul Abueva is in Kalamazoo but may network with other Net Zero, Passive House builders in MI.
