Open house for the Proud Green Home of St. Louis
The Proud Green Home of St. Louis
Before the drywall goes up, concealing this high performance home’s systems from the naked eye, Hibbs Homes, Verdatek Solutions and Proud Green Home will open the home for a demonstration of the building science behind the walls.
1 p.m. – 4 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 25
10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Friday, Sept. 26
Stop in to see the systems behind the walls and between the studs, and learn more about the energy efficient building materials and processes during design and construction of the home’s core structure.
Check out the Huber ZIP System sheathing and see how it improves durability and creates a more substantial building envelope, and learn about the unique materials being used to create a better living environment for the family, and especially their son struggling with allergy and asthma conditions.
ProudGreenHome.com has partnered with Hibbs Homes, Verdatek Solutions, Curtiss W.
