Every year, the Sustainable Building Tour provides an opportunity to tour homes that are pushing on the constructs of conventional building styles and practices by incorporating features to improve energy efficiency, reduce waste, and utilize sustainable and reclaimed materials. This year’s tour is bringing together everything that we love about the tour in a safe, virtual format. Each part of the two-part series will feature a single sustainably built home that has been captured through beautiful videography. The videos will be aired during the events and will be followed by a question and answer session with the designers, builders, and homeowners afterwards. The homes featured on the tour include a remodeled 1970’s a-frame cabin just down the road from the Thunderhead chairlift and a recently built SmartPads home in Fairview.
The second series showcases a home, designed and built by SmartPads, that gives a new meaning to prefab homes. The home features custom features throughout and was designed while keeping the functionality for the homeowners in mind. The living area of the home has been brought up to the second level in order to maximize solar gain, improve natural light, and to make the home more enjoyable for the owners. SmartPads takes important measures to reduce construction waste throughout the building process, and by cutting down the build time significantly, they have also been able to cut down on the greenhouse gases emitted throughout the process. Attend this event to learn more about SmartPads designs prefab homes with the needs of the site and homeowners in mind, all while providing a more attainable housing.
