The Northwest EcoBuilding Guild is proud to bring you the 2019 Northwest Green Home Tour - Greater Seattle and South Sound. The tour is your opportunity to see firsthand the many ways that environmentally conscious design and construction can benefit not only the planet as a whole, but your local community, your family, and you!

Green homes can put more money in your pocket by lowering your energy costs or even eliminating them altogether. Durable green building materials require less maintenance. Green homes are healthier homes, with fresher air and fewer toxins. Homeowners also report that their green homes are more comfortable to live in, quieter and without the cold drafts of standard construction. We hope that you’ll be as inspired as we are by all the innovative ideas, artistry, and craftsmanship you’ll see on the tour. Already, over 50% of new homes sold in King County are green. Join us in envisioning a Puget Sound region in which all building is green building.

FAQs

How do I get around to the different tour sites?

The tour is self-guided. Start and end at any of the tour stops. Many tour goers enjoy biking or walking between the sites, and carpooling is strongly encouraged.

Are children allowed?

Yes, please be mindful of other tour goers, and the home. Please park strollers or car seats outside.

Can I bring my dog?

Sorry, no pets are allowed.

What is involved with the check-in?

Just show your ticket at your first site. You will then get a wristband, and you can stroll on in to the rest of the sites that you visit!

Your tour wristband will also entitle you to free items and discounts at some sustainability stops (local businesses and organizations that support the tour and offer further opportunities for learning about green building).

How do I know where to find each site?

The official maps and tour programs will be available to download on www.nwgreenhometour.org. There will also be a mobile-friendly map link. You can also look for our special center pull-out section of the late-April edition of the Stranger.

Will I have to take my shoes off?

At most sites, you will be asked to either slip off your shoes, or wear shoe covers. It helps to wear shoes that are easy to remove.

Are the sites wheelchair accessible?

Some are, but most are not. To see pictures of the sites, which might give you a better idea, you can visit All Sites

What is parking like?

The parking situation differs from site to site. Since most of the sites are in residential neighborhoods, most will have free street parking available. If you are worried about parking and locations, we recommend you check out the map for location information.
