Has there been a cost analysis of the added insulation, vs insulating to code? Comparing the potential cost savings of the reduced spending on energy to heat/cool the home, to the larger mortgage being carried to pay for the added insulation for the Kenogami home vs a code built home? Basically wondering if the larger mortgage being carried for the expense to upgrade insulation, and to use advanced methods for building green outlined in the systems employed in the Kenogami home, was offset by the savings on the running costs for the home on a monthly basis?
