The GreenDwellingSeattle Monthly Home Tours are designed to be more than just a walk through a home, but a complete green building experience. Participants are given an introduction to common green building materials at ecoHAUS and then enjoy a guided tour of a select green home led by the people that are responsible for the homes design and construction. Join Dwell founder Anthony Maschmedt and architect Julian Weber for an informative experience regarding the materials, techniques, technologies, and of course design philosophy behind this collection of four urban homes.

This month we will be returning to the site of Dwell Development’s latest project 1105dwell, in Seattle’s Judkins Park neighborhood. Targeting Built Green 5-Star 3rd party verified certification, Energy Star Certified, and amongst the first homes in the city to receive the EnergySmart Home Scale. Outside of the widespread use of sustainable materials and non-toxic finishes energy has been a major focus of this project. Energy modeling that has been performed estimates that the four homes will be up to 45% more efficient than other homes built to the IECC 2004 home. Performance at these levels translates to annual estimated energy costs for heat and hot water at $750!!

Tour begins at 11:00 am at Ecohaus. The Ecohaus tour will be followed by a light lunch before carpooling to the Dwell Development project.
