GreenBuilt Tour Visit Eco-Friendly Homes: June 8-9
Visit sustainable Albuquerque homes for $2 on Saturday and Sunday June 8 and 9, 2013, and get ideas and inspiration from the owners on green construction and design.
The annual GreenBuilt Tour opens the door on Albuquerque and other New Mexico homes to show how these homeowners have put sustainable building practices into action, in practical, affordable, and (judging by the pictures) quite beautiful ways.
The properties on the tour vary in size, type, and price range. Some are new constructions, others are renovations, but they all incorporate green living principles and design.
Basically you turn up during tour hours this weekend, pay $2 per person at each home you want to visit, and then mosey about and ask questions of the owners, who will kindly share their knowledge and experience.
You can also get a two-day pass for all the homes for $15 online in advance from the GreenBuilt Tourwebsite, which would be smart if you plan to visit 8 or more properties. The pass gives unlimited home visits for one person.
Albuquerque homes in the GreenBuilt Tour are described in the PDF tour guide available at the website, with a map and a profile of each property, and lots of tempting photos too. These homes look GORGEOUS!
