- Shrewsbury firm receives award for energy saving renovation: Efficiency Vermont honors Redbarn Design & Build
On Feb. 6, Redbarn Design & Build of Shrewsbury received a
"Best of the Best in Home Performance with ENERGY STAR®" merit
award from Efficiency Vermont. The firm was recognized for its
energy saving renovation of a Shrewsbury farmhouse.
Redbarn Design & Build transformed a farmhouse that had been
costly to heat, uncomfortably cold in the winter, and suffering
from mold due to improperly installed insulation that encouraged
and trapped moisture. After replacement of mold- and
moisture-damaged materials and extensive air sealing and
insulation, the owners report that they have a mold-free home that
stays warm with a smaller fire in their wood furnace. Their energy
bills are estimated to have been cut by more than $2 thousand
dollars per year.
The "Best of the Best" awards, given annually by Efficiency
Vermont, recognize high achievement by builders, architects, and
contractors using energy efficiency and sustainability practices to
construct and renovate Vermont buildings.
The award winners for various categories were announced on Feb.

conference in Burlington, which hosted more than 1,000 of the
Northeast's top building design professionals and construction
