On April 20, 2017, BEC-Iowa visited the Iowa Nest Residence in rural Iowa. The tour began with a presentation by Peter Krebs and Carl Sterner about the Sefaira methodology to design the house, followed by a site tour.

The Iowa Nest is a Net Zero Energy targeted residence in rural Iowa. It is designed to supply 100% of its energy needs; to be comfortable without conventional air conditioning; to fit into the landscape; to last for hundreds of years; and to do all of this on a conventional construction budget.
