Check out the Wellesley Kitchen and Homes Tour on Saturday, May 7th from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 pm. This popular, annual fundraiser for the Wellesley Hills Junior Women’s Club (WHJWC) will show 6 houses on the Tour.
Some of which have some unique sustainable building aspects you want to see and learn about.
Don’t miss all the exquisite reclaimed wood (i.e. beams, barn doors) and granite that brings such character and a rustic, yet alluring, appeal to 100 Brook Street. You may want to inquire with Riverstone Custom Builders how they got the HERS rating so low (30!). Is it the the cell foam insulation? The energy efficient HRV air exchanger? The high efficient HVAC system with nest “learning” t-stats? Learn how the homeowners are saving money on the electric bills with the solar panels.
Advance tickets are $45; they’ll be $55 at the door. Proceeds will go to local charities and scholarships for Wellesley High School students. They can be purchased here or at the following retail locations:
Wellesley: Roche Bros., Florijn Home, and Dayton Home
Weston: Benoit Mizner Simon
Needham: Home Trends
Natick: Debsan the Decorating Store
Framingham: Yale Appliance + Lighting
Don’t forget its a fun tour do on a bicycle, or bring a friend and carpool.
