Central Iowa custom builder Prairieland Homes is the November 2020 RESNET HERS® Index Builder of the Month. Prairieland Homes partners, Jake Hanson and Joe Strotman, with over 50 years of combined experience and lifelong ties to the industry, are committed to providing their clients with the best construction experience possible. We asked Jake what makes their HERS® Rated homes so special. “Prairieland Homes is about making people feel at home. Not only are our homes beautiful, but we insure they are built with energy efficiency. We are with our customers every step of the way and because we live in the same community as our customers, we continue to be with them after the building process is over. Knowing we’ve done everything we can for our clients is what we do, and that includes HERS® testing. HERS® testing is another added touch to verify workmanship and materials are above par. This makes our homes more secure and as a result, offer lower utility bills.” Jake believes their responsibility does not end there. “Not only do we have a responsibility to our clients, but also to the environment in which we live. Going green is not just a trend – it is the right thing to do. Setting and achieving energy goals is something we are proud to do and accomplish for not just our clients, but for our environment.” “Prairieland Homes clients feel secure knowing they have a certified HERS® home. Our home provides our clients with the added touch they have come to expect. It allows them to relax and enjoy their new home for years.” Read more of the profile here.
