Visit Green Homes Big, Small and In-Between for Free this Saturday
The entire spectrum of local green design is on display in homes of all types—a 106-year-old Net-Zero Craftsman in Ballard to an under-construction, 5-Star Built Green targeted house in West Seattle—this Saturday (4/26) during the 2014 Northwest Green Home Tour.
The free annual tour, produced by Built Green and Northwest EcoBuilding Guild, takes place from 11 a.m.–5 p.m. and covers all compass points in the greater Seattle area. The challenge will be deciding where to head to first. To see a comprehensive, interactive map, visit: http://www.nwgreenhometour.org/map
In addition to all of the self-guided tour options, Feet First Board President Dave Ramsay will head up a 5.1-mile walk-through of parts of Fremont, Phinney Ridge and Greenwood, visiting six tour homes (see: http://www.nwgreenhometour.org/north-seattle-walking-tour), and there will be a number of special events held throughout the day (see: http://www.nwgreenhometour.org/blog/2014/4/23/free-workshops-during-the-tour).
