Green Home Tour 2018: Come See Our Latest Whole House Remodel
We’re excited to be participating once again in the annual Northwest Green Home Tour! Our Wallingford whole house remodel will be open for public touring from 11am to 5pm on Sunday, April 29th, 2018. We look forward to meeting you and showing you around this beautiful, Seattle modern home. A dated 1900s cottage is reborn as a light-filled, contemporary home with an open-concept kitchen. Walk around the large main floor, view the 2nd floor master suite and look out at Fremont views from the back deck. Designed by CAST Architecture, and built by us, its high-performance envelope, systems and fixtures led to Built Green 3-Star certification. This translates to a much healthier home and at least $298 in yearly electricity savings.
Interior green specs include: low-VOC paint, EnergyStar appliances, water-based floor stain, dual-flush toilets, LED lighting and durable (often local) materials. Even the built-in shoe storage at the front door helps prevent dirt and germs from spreading. Many of these things make the home (and therefore occupants) healthier and lead to long-term cost savings. Plus, we achieved over a 70% recycling rate of materials during construction, reducing waste sent to landfills.
Free and fun for the whole family, the self-guided Northwest Green Home Tour features healthier and greener new single-family, multi-family, tiny homes and remodels in the greater Seattle area. Get inspired by projects in all shades of light to deep green, from backyard cottages and kitchen remodels to new homes built with cutting-edge green features. You’ll see and learn first-hand how your neighbors are generating their own electricity with solar panels, lowering their energy bills with insulation, and creating healthier home environments for their families with better building materials and systems. Learn from experts and really understand “what makes it green” on this education focused tour.
