 Local builder Urban NW Homes continues to pave the way in forward thinking and sustainable building practices by building the nation’s first combined Net Zero & NGBS Emerald certified  home in the Salmon Creek  area of Vancouver, WA.

 Ever been curious about green building methods  and the techniques employed by select builders attempting to create eco-friendly and resource efficient homes?

 If so, you’re in luck!!  Urban NW Homes is hosting a Hard Hat Tour on-site at this project while it’s still under construction.  Visitors will be treated to a behind the scenes look at how these homes are being built and will be welcomed back on January 6th 2013 to see the finished product…

 The event will be taking place daily September 28th – October 7th  from 12-7pm, and you can find directions here.

 So come on out and support the people working to make our communities that much more sustainable, efficent, and overall well...GREEN!! Hope to see you out there...
