The Northwest EcoBuilding Guild is hosting the Seattle Green Home Tour on April 16-17.  Homes on the tour highlight various green building, remodeling and retrofitting techniques, such as Net Zero Energy use, Passive House standards of super energy-efficient construction, and where to purchase eco-friendly products.

The free Seattle Green Home Tour is from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on April 16-17.

Included in the tour is High Point's Neighborhood House High Point Center by Environmental Works.

Sustainable design concepts identified fro the project should yield a LEED Gold Certified project. Included in these concepts are: redevelopment of an urban site close to public transportation systems; providing bicycle storage and a shower for alternative transportation users; collecting and filtering rainwater from impervious surfaces through the stormwater system established throughout the high Point Master Plan; preventing solar heat gain while increasing daylight into spaces through the use of external shading devices; conserving electricity by specifying a Ground Source Heat Pump HVAC system; and generating up to one half of the building’s electricity needs with a 4,000 SF photovoltaic array, the largest to date in the State of Washington.

  2. This house seems very compelling indeed. I wonder how the interior looks like. This house needs to have an excellent wiring system. An electrical repair Garden City electrician can certainly help make the wiring system of this house perfect. Anyway, I wish I could have this kind of house.
