March 15: The Resilient Home: Sustainable, Beautiful + Affordable

Have you wanted to learn about homes with zero net energy and water strategies that provide resiliency, solar and backup, and on/off grid options? Come explore smaller, affordable, healthy, resilient homes that eliminate infrastructure and maintenance costs, manage energy, water and waste on site. This workshop is for home owners, developers, builders, realtors, designers, engineers, and architects.

These techniques are based on the most stringent Living Building Challenge 2.1 Standard that requires buildings to meet zero net energy and water, manage all waste on site, and be built with renewable and healthy materials, while affordable and beautiful.
