GreenBuilt Home Tour
July 22, 2017 @ 10:00 am - July 23, 2017 @ 4:00 pm CDT| $5 – $20
The GreenBuilt Home Tour features exceptional, award-winning, and nationally-recognized homes throughout Illinois, which highlight attractive, affordable, and sustainable building practices. During the two-day event, attendees will learn the ways the built environment contributes to a healthier community. The tour includes Illinois’ finest builders, designers and homeowners who have created healthy, energy saving green homes. Together they send a clear message: to reduce our nation’s need to produce energy we must “build it tight and vent it right.”
All homes on the tour are third-party verified (or pending verification) to ensure they are built (or being built) to national standards, earning certification through programs such as: ENERGY STAR for Homes, LEED for Homes, the National Green Building Standard, Zero Energy Ready Home, Illinois GreenStar, and Passive House. Because the homes are built better, they deliver measurable savings, comfort, and health to their owners.
Homes are featured throughout Chicago and the suburbs and some further afield.
Join us Saturday, July 22 and Sunday, July 23 for the fifth annual GreenBuilt Home Tour, showcasing sustainable, healthy homes in Northern Illinois.
We are assembling Illinois’ finest builders, designers and homeowners that have pulled out all the stops to create healthy green homes. The tour will feature numerous homes that need very little energy to keep them comfortable year round and homes that produce more energy than they use.
All homes on the tour have undergone third-party verification and testing to ensure the homes are built to national standards, earning certification through programs listed here.
Because the homes are built better, they deliver measurable savings, comfort, and health to their owners. Many of the homes on the GreenBuilt Home Tour will make you wonder why we all don’t have homes like these.
