Join the US Green Building Council Illinois Chapter’s fourth annual GreenBuilt Home Tour, showcasing 14 sustainable, healthy homes in Illinois.

About:

We are assembling Illinois’ finest builders, designers and homeowners that have pulled out all the stops to create healthy green homes. The tour will feature numerous homes that need very little energy to keep them comfortable year round and homes that produce more energy than they use.

All homes on the tour undergo third-party verification and testing to ensure the homes are built to national standards, earning certification through programs such as: ENERGY STAR for HomesLEED for Homes, the National Green Building StandardHERS RatingIL GreenStar and Passive House.

Because the homes are built better, they deliver measurable savings, comfort, and health to their owners. Many of the homes on the GreenBuilt Home Tour will make you wonder why we all don’t have homes like these. You may even be surprised by the affordability of many of the projects.
