Green Home Tours and Talks return with new format

BELLINGHAM, WA June 24, 2024


For over 20 years, Sustainable Connections has highlighted local green homes as a part of their popular Green Home Tours & Talks. The tours are returning this year as a free pop-up series, providing multiple dates and locations throughout the remainder of the year where participants can learn about the technology and techniques that are implemented in the most sustainable homes in our community.

The tour series kicks off on July 13th with a tour hosted by True Bearing Built at their Lake Whatcom Passive House. The property features solar ready design, a heat pump water system, and many other innovative sustainable design solutions. Future tours will be hosted at sites developed by TC Legend Homes and Instinct Builders with features including:

  • Advanced insulation technology
  • Heat recovery ventilation systems
  • Additional dwelling units (ADUs)
  • Wheelchair-accessible designs

“We’re excited to be offering this new format for the Green Home Tours & Talks.” said Elizabeth Vaughn, Energy and Green Building Program Assistant. “These pop-ups will allow participants to view homes at optimal points in their builds, take more time to learn about their design features, and get inspired by more green building innovation in the Pacific Northwest. We hope to give our community the resources, ideas, and inspiration to make their next home project a success.”

Registration for the growing list of pop-ups can be found on the Sustainable Connections website.
