Build It Green Home Tour of Santa Clara County A Success

Real Estate Agent with The Papas Group (DRE #01766524)

On Sunday 10/1/2006, the Build It Green Home Tour of Santa Clara County was held. There were 11 home open to the public. Some were new construction, others were remodels or complete rebuilds. The homes were located 

  • 2 in Palo Alto -- 2 in Los Altos Hills
  • 1 in Cupertino -- 1 in Santa Clara
  • 1 in Campbell -- 1 in Los Gatos
  • 3 in San Jose

The homes were proof that excellent architecture and green building have entered the mainstream in local home construction. One residence in Palo Alto was rebuilt using much of the same material that was originally installed. This feat was done by an environmentally sensitive demolition company. Unless someone pointed this out, there was no way to tell the building was reassembled from much of the material from which is was built. Amazing!

More info on Build It Green Home Tours can be found at their web site. They also hold classes that teach green building and remodeling. A wonderful resource!

Amazing the levels people will go.  Any information on the increased value of green in your neck of the woods?
