The Pacific Northwest Green Home Tour is back! Taking place Saturday, May 14, the tour is free and self-guided and includes healthy homes remodeled or newly constructed in your neck of the woods; from single-family homes with small to big remodels, new builds of backyard cottages, DADUs, ADUs, Net Zero and Passive houses, co-housing and condos, each project featuring sustainable ways to live in the Pacific Northwest.
This year’s sites include: a detached accessory dwelling unit designed and constructed using SIPS panels; a rental unit, designed and permitted as a manufactured housing unit, that was set upon an existing garage; a newly constructed community with electric net-zero energy homes; a small home remodel to allow for family aging-in-place; and a student studio rental unit. See how builders are making the most of existing structures to create more usable space with minimal additions.
