Kamloops Chapter Event: Tour the Green Dream Home

Chapter Meeting
May 17 2010 - 7:00pm

The Kamloops Chapter of the BCSEA invites you to a “sneak preview” tour of the Y Green Dream Home! Join us at 7:00 pm on Monday, May 17th for a tour of this amazing home. The address is 1858 Ironwood Terrace in the Sun Rivers development. Turn off the highway onto East Shuswap Road and then left onto Sun Rivers Drive. Follow the signs from there.

Because of limited capacity, pre-registration is required. Please send an e-mail to gruckert@ocis.net giving the names of the people who will attend. Call me at (250) 374-1472 if you need more information.

The Y Green Dream Home was one of the winning entries in the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) EQuilibriumTM Sustainable Housing Demonstration Initiative - a national initiative to design, build and demonstrate sustainable homes throughout Canada. It has a predicted near net zero annual energy consumption, through the use of passive solar heating, grid-tied photovoltaic panels, solar hot water heating, and a ground source heat pump. The design work was done by TRU architectural and engineering technology students, and TRU trades students built the house. Landscaping, designed and installed by TRU horticulture students, features drought-resistant native plants as well as edible plants.

If you can’t join us for the BCSEA tour, feel free to attend one of the public tours. Details at the website: http://www.greendreamhome.ca/tour.htm
