Homes selected for the tour meet important third-party-verified green building standards, such as LEED, EarthCraft House or Energy Star. They all showcase the beauty, function and cost savings of green homes, and include extensive educational information. You’ll see homes ranging from ultra-urban to suburban to rural, and from modest affordable homes to million dollar upscale homes. Come see all the latest in cost effective sustainable practices including solar energy, geothermal, maximum insulation, water efficiency, rain water harvesting, sustainable landscaping and more. If you have any interest in sustainable living, this is a great opportunity to see some of Middle Tennessee’s cutting edge green homes and learn practical things you can do in your home right away.
