My co-worker and her husband are moving to Michigan. He wants to build a block/brick home, but she says it will be hard to heat, especially in such cold winters. He insists that as long as it is properly insulated there should be no problem. How energy efficient are block homes? Don't block homes lose heat fast?

Any masonary product is the lowest on the scale of efficiency for insulation purposes. However, the man is correct (as always). If the house is insulated properly, it poses no problems.
