Thank you again for joining us for the GreenBuilt Home Tour on Saturday, July 22 and Sunday, July 23 between 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM! Please read these important reminders about your registration:

  1. Please print your PDF ticket or be able to access your ticket on your phone. This will help our registration volunteers check you in quickly at each home.
  2. Each ticket admits 2 guests (additional guests under 18 are free).
    1. If you’ve purchased the “Passport” ticket, you may use this ticket to get into all of the homes on both July 22 and July 23.  Passport ticket holders should get one wristband per passport at the first home they visit.  Passport ticket holders can show their wristband at each home they visit from there instead of their ticket, but please make sure you still sign-in at each home so we can determine the total number of visits to each home.
    2. If you’ve purchased the “Single Home Visit” ticket, you may use this ticket to get into the individual home you purchased on July 22 and July 23.
  3. Please sign-in at each home you visit on the tour. This helps us determine the total number of visits at each home and helps us plan for next year.
  4. Tours will begin at each home on a rolling basis. If you arrive at a home just after a tour has begun, the volunteer will offer you the option to join the group OR give you an approximate time until the next tour will begin.
  5. Pick up a tour brochure at your first stop. The brochure contains information about the tour and addresses for all of the homes.
