The GreenBuilt Home Tour features exceptional, award-winning, and nationally-recognized homes throughout Illinois, which highlight attractive, affordable, and sustainable building practices. During the two-day event, attendees will learn the ways the built environment contributes to a healthier community. The tour includes Illinois’ finest builders, designers and homeowners who have created healthy, energy saving green homes. Together they send a clear message: to reduce our nation’s need to produce energy we must “build it tight and vent it right.”
All homes on the tour are third-party verified (or pending verification) to ensure they are built (or being built) to national standards, earning certification through programs such as: ENERGY STAR for Homes, LEED for Homes, the National Green Building Standard, Zero Energy Ready Home, Illinois GreenStar, and Passive House. Because the homes are built better, they deliver measurable savings, comfort, and health to their owners.
