Don't miss this green home mega tour if you'll be in Portland a week from Saturday. (If you're like us, it's a great reason for a weekend getaway; tickets for the tour are just $10-$15.) This annual event just keeps getting bigger and better. This year, we counted 21 houses. The tour runs all day Saturday and is followed by a information session/block party at Portland institution Environmental Building Supplies.
21 houses is too many to cover in one day, so we're choosing our route carefully. If there's a house you don't want us to miss, send a note our way.
Here are a few homes that we'll be sure to visit:
This couple designs and builds homes together as Building Arts Workshop, LLC. Their vision is to create distinctively modern homes guided by sustainability and craftsmanship. When completed, the Orchid Street project will meet the rigorous LEED for Homes — Gold standard.
Read about the other homes at this link, and let us know if you'll be on the tour so we can say hello.
