Yes, these are specs particular to Massachussets.  I think the state along 
with the electric companies came up with these guidelines for people to 
build houses that would enable them to reduce their energy consumption by 
50% for this area. The banks recognize these specs and will lend people 
more money for their house because they know the utility bills will be much 
lower. I don't know of any such thing anywhere else.
