It’s a great thing when I see an abundance of marketing efforts for green homes. The HGTV home I wrote about last week has started their tours in Plymouth, MA. Now, Country Living magazine is going to build a certified LEED home into the middle of New York City at the World Financial Center. They have partnered with New World Home to create modular homes that reflect the tastes of Country Living’s readers, with a eco-friendly edge. I think it’s a great opportunity to showcase the latest in home design to a very large audience.
Here is some information about the tours they will be offering for their Green Home:
Country Living’s 2010 House of the Year will be open to the public Country Living will be donating $5,000 to benefit National Parks off the New York Harbor Conservancy. To see the complete collection of Country Living green modular homes visit www.newworldhome.com/countryliving. 11-5, Saturday and Sunday 9-6 and 10-2 at The World Financial Center. Tickets are free. Following the open house the home will move to Crystal Springs Resort near Vernon , N.J. where it will become a permanent Country Living Green Modular Home design center.
If you could renovate part of your house and make it greener, what would you want to do? On my list, a larger recycling area and a greenhouse to grow more of my own food. Has anyone experienced building their own green home? I would love to hear about the challenges you faced and how you learned about all the options in building materials.
