Fayetville, Arkansas -- BioBased Insulation, a manufacturer of soya-based polyols for spray polyurethane foam (SPF), has partnered with FreeGreen.com, a house planning website, to provide free downloadable energy-efficient home designs, a 1 March company statement said.
The plans for the sponsored three designs -- the Health Family Craftsman Home, the Modern Ranch Home and the Contemporary Colonial Home -- are available for free to anyone who creates a login at the site.
"We offer spray-foam insulation products that help make homes more energy efficient, and we saw this sponsorship as a practical way to show people how to use our products to build an energy-efficient home," said Jennifer Wilson, brand manager for BioBased Technologies, in the company statement.
The plans, BioBased said, are 3D renderings of what the interior of the homes could look like and include energy reports detailing how the designs would perform in different climates. "All of the homes are designed to perform 30-50 percent better than prescriptive building code energy performance," the company added. (RD)
