SVBA Parade of Homes 2011

SVBA Parade of Homes 2011

The SVBA Parade of Homes is underway and our energy efficient home design has been very popular. I have had many conversations about vegetated retaining walls, rainwater harvesting, and high performance energy efficient systems. We had over 100 people visit on Saturday and will be open from 1-4pm today. The home is in Crossroads Farm on Wilton Place.

The SVBA is presenting the 2011 Parade of Homes on October 22 – 23. Open house times on Saturday are 10 am – 4pm and Sunday 1 pm – 4pm. This annual event gives you a chance to see the latest innovations in home building, learn from the builders what it takes to build high performance, and to meet some of the innovators in the community. I encourage you to take time to visit a few of the homes in the parade this year.Your support of this event is very important for those taking time to prepare their homes for the parade and will go a long way of supporting the industry the is so key to our economic recovery.

We have an entry in this year’s parade in Crossroads Farm. The Connelly residence features a rainwater harvesting system, vegetative retaining walls, high performance insulation and Heating and Cooling system, and self-cleaning windows. Come out to see me at the house and I will be happy to answer questions, give you a tour, and talk about any building science questions you might have for your own home.
