[ARCHIVED] - You're Invited: Free Green Building Tours -

zHome

As we celebrate the fourth anniversary of zHome, we want to invite you to learn more about green building.

zHome was America’s first zero net-energy townhome development. The project proved that homes using net zero energy and less water, having clean indoor air and utilizing only low-toxicity materials are possible for mainstream residences.

Please join us as we host the final tours at the zHome Stewardship Center, 1715 Ninth Place N.E. Free tours are available at the following times:

Oct. 14, 2015

  • 10 a.m.
  • Noon
  • 2 p.m.
  • 4 p.m.

Oct. 15

  • 10 a.m.
  • Noon
  • 2 p.m.

Learn about the technologies, planning and design that allowed zHome to reach its environmental benchmarks.

As part of the project, one of the 10 units was leased to the City at no cost to be used as an educational center.

During the last four years, the Stewardship Center has served as a green building education and demonstration center for both public and professional audiences to continue the goals of the zHome project.

It has also been a community resource and collaboration space for sustainability-related organizations on the Eastside.
