Free and fun for the whole family, this self-guided tour features healthier and greener new single-family, multi-family, tiny homes and remodels in the greater Seattle area. 11am to 5pm each day, April 28 & 29.

Get inspired by projects in all shades of light to deep green, from backyard cottages and kitchen remodels to new homes built with cutting-edge green features. You’ll see and learn first-hand how your neighbors are generating their own electricity with solar panels, lowering their energy bills with insulation, and creating healthier home environments for their families with better building materials and systems. Learn from experts and really understand “what makes it green” on this education focused tour.
This year’s tour features a broad range of dwellings: the first ever multifamily Passive House in the state, two Net Zero Energy homes, an Emerald Star Home, Energy Star DADU (detached accessory dwelling unit), a RainWise garden home, two backyard cottages, several Built Green® certified homes and much more! As always, there will be commercial Sustainability Stops along the way!
Presented by the Northwest EcoBuilding Guild and Greenhome Solutions, the eighth-annual Northwest Green Home Tour is a fun opportunity to learn, get inspired, and discover new ways to live more lightly on the earth.
