Green Demonstration Home Open House

Center on Sustainable Communities is hosting a series of Open Houses at their "Des Moines Green Demo Home", 1347 Forest Ave. The events are free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.

Come view this amazing infill home at any of three open house times:

  • Sunday, May 17th from 2:00 - 4:00pm
  • Tuesday, May 19th from 11:00am - 1:00pm
  • Tuesday, May 19th from 4:00 - 7:00pm

I pass by this location regularly and have been excited to watch the transformation of this vacant lot into a well-designed new home. The home is respectful of traditional massing, site placement, and architectural character of the surrounding homes - yet it is clearly contemporary in feel. On top of that, it is both "green" and affordable (through major subsidy, but nontheless affordable).

Within the next month, I will be starting work on rehabilitation of a house across the street from this one.
