BOULDER – Homeowners, builders and anyone eager to discover the latest in sustainable building practices will step inside some of Boulder County’s most innovative green home designs during the second annual Boulder Green Home Tour tomorrow, Saturday, Sept. 24.

Self-guided tours showcase how renewable energy and energy efficient materials and practices create comfortable, sustainable living. The tour includes modern and traditional custom homes, remodels and multi-family projects in Boulder, Lafayette
and Louisville.

Tour organizer Colorado Green Building Guild selected this year’s featured homes to promote the collaborative exchange of ideas on green building in the Boulder area.

The day will culminate in a celebratory after-party at the Roadhouse Depot. Open to all ticket holders, volunteers and sponsors, after-party goers will vote for the tour’s People’s Choice Award and will talk with architects, contractors, homeowners and vendors.

A special pre-event party for those who want to learn more about green building and get a preview of homes will be held at the Brewers Association tonight, Friday, Sept. 23. The pre-party features a presentation on Green Building 101, Net Zero and Passive House and a preview of some of the homes on the tour.

Made possible by the support of sponsors including Platinum Sponsor RE/MAX of Boulder, 200 to 500 design-minded attendees are expected. Last year, more than 450 visitors toured 11 green homes.

A portion of the proceeds go to Flatirons Habitat for Humanity to benefit their local projects.

The Colorado Green Building Guild is a non-profit geared to ensure widespread adoption of sustainable building practices in order to more efficiently use resources, create healthier buildings and support vibrant sustainable communities. The non-profit trade organization represents a wide range of green building leaders.
