This is a video tour of the first Houseboat to Energy Efficient Residences (HBEER) prototype home located in Monticello, Ky. The HBEER project partners include the University of Kentucky College of Design, UK Center for Applied Energy Research, and Kentucky Highlands Investment Corporation and the Kentucky Housing Corporation. The goal was to design a house that can be built in a houseboat factory, with 70% Kentucky-made products, that costs $1 a day to heat and cool, with a purchase price of $100,000. The first HBEER prototype home, in Monticello, KY, included 82% Kentucky products and services. Energy costs at current rates are expected to be about $1.65 per day.
