Season 2, Episode 5: All Systems Go at the Schaper House!

In today's episode, we check in on the progress of Rick and Meredith's custom home build in St. Louis. On the heels of framing, we're now talking about the mechanical systems chosen for the Schaper home - and why these selections may be some of the most important choices to the life of your home, providing the greatest return on your investment. We talk with the Schapers and then head on-site for a walk-through of the property to discuss HVAC, ductwork, Radon Ready systems, basement waterproofing and more.

In the second half of our episode, we talk with Spencer Padgett, the Builder in Residence at Co-Construct, a construction management software we utilize on every project. We talk about how this cloud-based tool can keep you construction project on-time, on-budget, and organized.

In next week's episode, we'll talk about the all-important insulation. As a ComfortBuilt-certified green home builder, this is an area we pay special attention to. Learn more about our approach and the special steps that we take to save energy, improve indoor air quality, and create a more comfortable home.
