Whitehorse builders vie for energy efficient supremacyCBC News, January 4, 2015
A Whitehorse man who’s hobby is building homes is aiming to build the most energy efficient house in the Yukon.
Forest Pearson is constructing the laneway home in the downtown area.
“We’re really just trying to get the building as energy efficient as possible,” Pearson says.
“A few years ago a friend of mine and I built a home that at the time was the most energy efficient home in Whitehorse and then a couple of other friends raised the bar a little bit and so now we’re just trying to nibble away at the last little bits of crumbs of energy wastage in the homes,” he says.
