Winter Learn Over Lunch on
The Basics of Green Built Homes

Noon Wednesday, Dec. 12

Asheville Home Builders Association,
14 Mimidis Lane, Swannanoa, NC

Green building is extremely popular in Buncombe County, and the Asheville-based Green Built Homes program has been a leader in educating builders and certifying homes statewide since 2004. With 1,580 Green Built certified homes and more than 250 participating builders, this is much more than a trend—it is a movement to protect the environment, support the health of occupants, cut utility costs, and increase the value of homes.

Come learn how you can boost the quality and value of homes through green building. Hosted by Asheville Home Builders Association, this two-hour course with lunch will provide the basics on the importance and how-to of green building, and an overview of how builders can get involved in the Green Built Homes program administered by the nonprofit Green Built Alliance. Lunch will be available starting at 11:30 a.m. with the program beginning at noon.

Bring your questions and we will explore topics including:

◘ Maximizing site selection and land stewardship
◘ Designing for energy efficiency
◘ Selecting and building a tight energy efficiency envelope
◘ Installing energy-efficient materials and appliances
◘ Installing and financing solar energy
◘ Best practices for water conservation
◘ Achieving healthy indoor air quality
◘ Selecting recycled and rapidly renewable materials
◘ Minimizing waste in construction
◘ Marketing the value of green building to your customers

The class is free to members of Green Built Alliance and Asheville Home Builders Association, and $20 for others.

RSVP is required. Sign up on AHBA's website!
