The Behind The Drywall® Tour – Continuing the Series in 2017

April 8, 2017 @ 8:00 am - April 9, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

This first tour of 2017 will celebrate our 10-year anniversary of our Behind The Drywall® Tour Series!  For our next installment we are opening up one of the most sustainable homes Meadowlark has ever built…and one of the most challenging as well!

SUSTAINABILITY IN PERFECT PROPORTION

Rendering of Sustainable Tudor Style Home

This Tudor cottage is perfect in proportion with a second floor that nestles into the steep roof just as if built in centuries past. Old Tudors are notoriously difficult to retrofit for comfort and efficiency. To get the true look of an older Tudor with a high degree of energy efficiency turns out to be similarly difficult. After months of collaborative design between clients and Meadowlark’s design staff, the result is home that is both a model of long-term sustainability and a timeless Tudor classic.

Exceedingly well insulated and air sealed with state-of-the-art HVAC technology, the home will sip energy at a level at which most houses can only dream of. Healthy and über-comfortable, this home is built to be long-lasting and durable using recycled content and locally-made, biologically-friendly building products. It is a labor of love and a beacon for the future. Our ultra-low energy future awaits, with roots in our past.

Come to the Behind The Drywall® tour to learn more about this unique home and to see the other cutting-edge building techniques used in this spectacular new home. This one hour guided tour is free, however space is limited so registration is required.

TENTATIVE DATES ARE APRIL 8 AND 9, 2017.
STAY TUNED TO WEBSITE FOR SPECIFIC TOUR TIMES AND REGISTRATION INFORMATION.

Please note:  this is a tour of a home under construction so appropriate clothing and footwear is recommended.
