2009 Tallahassee Parade of Homes

By
Real Estate Agent with EarthSTEPS

It is that time again!

 

It seems like only a few weeks ago since the 2008 Parade of Homes. This year promises to be even more exciting. With gorgeous weather upon us, and two full weekends of open houses, what are you waiting for. Come Check out the 2009 Tallahassee Parade of Homes!

 

This year's Parade of Homes has some spectacular entries. Many of this year's entries have gone green and received certifications for their energy-efficiency or sustainable building practices. Great examples exist of both affordable (BrackenChase) and high-end (GBGH Construction) examples of energy efficient ENERGY STAR buildings.


Builder's or homeowners wishing to build or remodel green: LEED, ENERGY STAR, Florida Green Building Coalition, or NAHB Green Certifications should contact North Florida's leading green professionals at EarthSTEPS.
