Go behind the scenes to learn about the design and construction of a net zero energy home that will produce as much energy annually as it consumes.

Architects ZeroEnergy Design, and contractors Auburndale Builders will explain how this home will achieve exceptional energy performance, healthy indoor air quality, superior thermal comfort, and long term durability.

While the home is under construction, you will get the unique perspective of seeing the building and systems while the walls are still open for viewing, plus a short explanatory presentation by the experts.

DATE:  January 18, 2017, Wednesday at 12PM

(Address provided approximately a week before tour to confirmed attendees.)

DETAILS:  Attendance is free.  RSVP required!

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.
