If you go to the Mobarak family’s home, you won’t see a big star shining above their EnergyStar® home, distinguishing it from other houses in the area. The real proof can be seen on the Mobaraks’ monthly hydro and natural gas bills.
The homeowners, Michelle and Hafeezul Mobarek, are part of a growing group of consumers who are putting increasing importance on construction technology. After moving to the Windsor area they did extensive research before entering into home ownership including comparisons between previously owned homes and new ones like the one recently built with BK Cornerstone Design/Build Ltd.
“When looking at the resale market we were concerned about a drafty home, rooms that are too hot or too cold, and high energy bills,” says Michelle. With the impending birth of their first child and maternity leave,Michelle was set on being sure their purchase decision was the right one. In the end, the Mobareks were most pleased. “We got exactly what we wanted for a similar price as a resale home – and we got the benefits of EnergyStar,” says Michelle.
BK Cornerstone built Windsor and Essex County’s first EnviroHome.
