This year’s local, annual green building tour will offer a flexible format with a walking Sustainable Homes Tour where tour-goers will have the chance to see a variety of sustainably built homes in one neighborhood. Attendees will start at the Steamboat Arts Depot to pick up a wristband ticket and map and then walk a few blocks to view a variety of sustainably built homes. Each location will offer a short educational talk on the half hour followed by questions and answers and self-guided walkthroughs.

This year’s tour will highlight how to accomplish a sustainable build in Steamboat via various tactics, ranging from a very energy-efficient accessory dwelling unit atop a garage on a three-lot parcel, to homeowners as their own general contractor with consultant help, from a contractor self-build, to a solar-powered well-insulated older home, and more. If you would like to sponsor or volunteer to help with this year’s tour, please contact Suzie@yvsc.org
