Record Crowds Gather for Construction Tours of the Green Idea House!

We want to express our sincere appreciation to all of you for making Saturday a huge success. The event was booked solid a week in advance and over 200 people came out for tours and the educational expo. We had to turn people away to ensure the safety of everyone at the site!

The event was sponsored by the U.S. Green Building Council/South Bay Chapter, Energy Upgrade CA and Leadership Hermosa Beach. People learned about the affordable innovations that will bring the house to net zero energy and zero carbon. Wes Harding co-presented with Robert and demonstrated a blower door and the other tools of building science that help construct a thermal envelope that works. It was exciting to see people start to understand how they could use what we are doing.

We prepared a “Background/ Features and Partner’s Resource Listing” document to help everyone understand the project and sources to build their own Green Idea Houses (see: GIH Background, Features and Partner’s Resource Listing )

To learn about future tours, “like” the Green Idea House on Facebook.
