BRATTLEBORO, Vt. – Calling all homeowners and high performance builders! On Saturday, Oct. 5, 2019 the Sustainable Energy Outreach Network will present its fourth annual Sustainable Home Tour from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at locations throughout Windham County. SEON is now accepting submissions from builders and homeowners whose new construction, renovations, or additions built within the past five years have given consideration to high performance buildings processes, products, and standards. If you’d like to submit your project for consideration, please email a paragraph or two outlining the features, products, ratings, and designations that you believe qualifies your home for the tour. Send email to SEON at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Friday, May 24. Be sure to visit www.seon/hometour and read descriptions of last year’s homes to get a sense of the types of projects that qualify.
This tour is for homeowners, aspiring homeowners, and anyone who would like to learn more about high performance homes. The builders will be present to explain their approach and decision-making to meet the highest building standards. Oftentimes the homeowners are present and they’ll share their enthusiasm and reasons for initiating this project, features, and results. This has become a wonderful yearly event for many, last year drawing folks from Rhode Island and Boston.
