Welcome to the 14th annual Spring Green Home Tour!

Welcome to the 14th annual Spring Green Home Tour! Sponsored by the High Performance Building Council, a joint council of the Home Builders Associations (HBAs) of Durham, Orange, and Chatham Counties and of Raleigh-Wake County. This tour is a free, self-guided event from noon to 5 pm on April 27-28 and May 4-5.

Excellent examples of green home construction at various levels of national certification are included in this year’s tour, from National Green Building Standard to EcoSelect and/or ENERGY STAR®. These programs are detailed in this publication in easy-to-understand terms. Each home in the Tour is third-party inspected and verified to ensure that it meets the minimum certification requirements established by its specified program.

Triangle home buyers looking for healthy, energy efficient, and cost-effective homes are in for a treat when touring the 2019 entries. Building professionals onsite at each home will be available to answer questions and present high-performance features to participants. As homes on the tour may be in various stages of construction or even owner-occupied, this annual Open House is a unique opportunity to see first-hand some of the innovative high-performance building practices at work in our area.

The Spring Green Building Tour Committee invites you to visit every home on the tour. Ask questions, take notes, and enjoy interacting with our builder representatives. Happy Touring to one and all!
