The U.S. Green Building Council-Illinois will hold its third annual GreenBuilt Home Tour in 16 homes on the weekend of July 25-26. It helps raise public awareness about healthy and sustainable home-building practices in real-world applications. "The tour provides one-time public access to both completed and in-progress homes, each one designed and constructed to demonstrate a number of green-building approaches varying architectural styles and settings," said Brian Imus, executive director of the USGBC-Illinois, organizer of the home tour. "It's about bringing to the life the difference green building design and construction can make for anyone interested in saving money and the planet."
