Join the U.S. Green Building Council - Illinois Chapter's Rockford/Northern Illinois Branch for a Sustainable Residential Home Tour.

This is the follow up of the Woodstock residence tour and program “Building a LEED Home on a Budget”. The home, on a 5 acres site was purchased with no roof or interiors from a bank and converted to a sustainable home.

Learn how this proposed LEED Silver “gut & rehab” project was finished, and how sustainable decisions were made from HVAC systems to carpet. We will talk about the trade-offs in accomplishing credits. Highlights include new mechanical systems, Pex piping system, a HRV, locally built millwork cabinets, reused products, and an on-demand hot water system. On the property a large garden provides more than enough vegetables for the homeowners, friends, and donations to the near by food shelter. The project includes a ground mounted 5 KW solar panel installation which was designed with micro-inverters to allow the home to be Netzero electric.

The budget will be updated, HERS Rating revealed, and scorecard shared with the audience.  In addition, the LEED rater will conduct an actual blower door test demonstration for a first hand experience on how a HERS rating is obtained.

Food and drinks will be provided with a cookout provided by the homeowners.
