Event: The 2011 Green Home Tour

This weekend, the Northwest EcoBuilding Guild is hosting the 2011 Green Home Tour for Seattle and Eastside King County. With 28 homes featured, it's a great way to see some fantastic projects and learn more about what makes a home green. More info after the jump!

The tour (which is free and open to the public) is self-guided so you can see as much or as little as you'd like. The projects range from new construction to kitchen remodels and helpful guides and signage will explain what strategies were used, their benefits and where to buy products locally.

Going above and beyond simply "green", some of the highlights include:

  • One of the first projects in Seattle to apply for Passive House certification
  • A gut rehab aiming for LEED certification
  • Two Net Zero Energy projects
  • A single family residence (designed by SHED) featured in the April issue of Dwell
