2. 2019 NW Green Home Tour 5/4-5
The Northwest EcoBuilding Guild is proud to bring you the 2019 Northwest Green Home Tour – Greater Seattle and South Sound. The tour is your opportunity to see firsthand the many ways that environmentally conscious design and construction can benefit not only the planet as a whole, but your local community, your family, and you!
Green homes can put more money in your pocket by lowering your energy costs or even eliminating them altogether. Durable green building materials require less maintenance. Green homes are healthier homes, with fresher air and fewer toxins. Homeowners also report that their green homes are more comfortable to live in, quieter and without the cold drafts of standard construction. We hope that you’ll be as inspired as we are by all the innovative ideas, artistry, and craftsmanship you’ll see on the tour. Already, over 50% of new homes sold in King County are green. Join us in envisioning a Puget Sound region in which all building is green building.
