Workshop: Characteristics of a Green Home

October 25, 2014 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

What makes a house “green”? The materials chosen are just one aspect of sustainable living. Compact use of space, a well-designed building envelope, water-efficient plumbing, easy-to-clean surfaces, and a productive, low-water-use landscape all contribute to a home’s efficient use of resources. This workshop will provide an overall picture of a green home and help participants identify what they can do to move in a climate-friendly direction.

The workshop will be taught by JP resident Greg Caplan, a staff member at Boston Building Resources. Cost is $65 for the public, $40 for BBR members.
