“Once something is a passion, the motivation is there.”

Michael Schumacher

The Cross-Border Challenge is an annual event sponsored by RESNET and the Canadian Residential Energy Services Network (CRESNET) to recognize U.S. and Canadian builders who are pioneering the path to high-energy performance homes. CRESNET is RESNET’s sister organization in Canada.


What are the key qualities embodied in the winner of the 2022 Cross-Border challenge?


What are the underlying philosophies, processes and passions that create homes that customers truly desire?

Today on RESTalk we are joined by Paul Erhardt, President and Stefan Orenda, Chief Technology Officer both of Mandalay Homes in Prescott Valley, AZ to learn about their award-winning business.


In addition to reviewing the entry and judging requirements for the award, we get a peek inside the processes and philosophies at play in Mandalay Homes; systems that create an award-winning business that truly delivers for their customers.
