Event Description

green|spaces' NextGen Homes began with a simple question, "Why aren't healthy, net zero energy homes commonly built in our market in Chattanooga, Tennessee?" Builders said "Because no one asks for them." Buyers said "Because it's not available and I probably couldn't afford it if it was." Michael Walton, Executive Director at green|spaces and licensed architect, will provide an overview of his nonprofit's demonstration development of healthy, high-performance homes that produce as much energy as they consume. Most importantly, they built and sold them at market rate.
