Green Home Tour offers free, inspirational showcase of projects
May 5, 2021
Northwest EcoBuilding Guild's annual green home tour is underway. This year's event will showcase more than 20 homes and projects "in all shades of light to deep green." The interactive virtual tours are scheduled for three Saturdays: May 1, 8, and 15. Different homes and projects will be featured from 9 am - 11:30 am on each date.
Attendees can view backyard cottages, kitchen remodels, and new homes built with cutting-edge green features. Builders, designers, suppliers, and homeowners will demonstrate ways to generate your own electricity, lower energy bills, and conserve water. Experts will offer tips for creating healthier home environments.
Two ticket options are available for this educational program: a "set your price" admission for each tour (with a suggested donation of $5) or a "tour lovers" package that includes access to all virtual events and unlimited access to all recordings from the tours.
Founded in 1993, the Northwest EcoBuilding Guild is a 501(c)3 community concerned with ecological building and long-term sustainability in the Pacific Northwest. The organization was founded by a small group of professionals already incorporating green building ideas into their practices and has grown to three chapters. In addition to networking and exchanging ideas, the Guild offers monthly educational meetings and produces an online Green Pages directory with more than 100 searchable pages of professionals, businesses, and organizations.
