Exclusive Whole Home Building Standards: a better-built home

There’s standard building code, and then there’s M/I. We only want to build homes that we’d want to live in ourselves. And we had to create better building standards of our own to do it.

Whole Home Building Standards

Built into every M/I Home

Our methods result is a weather-tight, energy-efficient home with a lower cost of ownership. You’ll save as much as 30% on your energy bills compared to a home built to standard code. And that’s just the beginning.

Our commitment to energy efficient living

Our methods result is a weather-tight, energy-efficient home with a lower cost of ownership. You’ll save as much as 30% on your energy bills compared to a home built to standard code. And that’s just the beginning. Our standards encompass everything in and around your home. And we do it all while being environmentally responsible.

The Whole Home Envelope

Every home is wrapped in a weather-tight envelope that keeps weather out and comfort in. We seal every seam, and caulk every crevice. No matter what the season, you’ll be comfortable. And you’ll feel even more comfortable with your lower energy bills.
