It’s part Home Tour, part Block Party, and free fun for the whole family! There’s a new home show on the block this summer and it’s called the ProBuild Green Home Street Fair. This three day free show will take place August 19-21, 2016 and aims to give Clark County locals an up close look at homes built to the National Green Building Standard (NGBS) in a festive setting.
Visit homes showcasing the latest intelligent and sustainable residential design possibilities available today! Expect to see things like a washing machine that waters your lawn, recycled wine barrel floors, and a house that knows how to keep a party going! You can also tour a See-Through Home, providing a behind-the-walls look at the innovative construction features of a home built to the NGBS.
What makes this Home Tour a party? Musicians will be playing all day on the Global Security Entertainment Stage, talented performers like Curtis Carlyle will delight attendees and the neighborhood’s central park provides plenty of space for little ones to run. There will also be free ice cream, kids activities, street performers and Clark Public Utilities will debut a fun photo booth. Unique, local food carts and a beer garden will add great flavor to every visit and local vendors will be featuring art, plants, green products and new home tech.
“Come for the home tour, stay for the party!” invites Aaron Helmes of Urban NW Homes, chair of the Green Building Council and builder of one of the show homes. “We want people to experience the latest in home building technology in an inviting and entertaining way. NGBS homes are comfortable, healthy and durable. Attendees will really get a good understanding of the technology behind the walls with our see-through home feature. And, the event is just going to be a fun place to hang out on a summer day!”
The ProBuild Green Home Street Fair will be open from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm Friday, Saturday and Sunday, August 19-21, 2016 at Urban Oaks, 10707 NE 152nd Ave, Vancouver. And remember, admission is FREE!
