Join us for this FREE Self Guided Tour – 10:00 to 4:00 Saturday, October 1st. A new understanding of the importance of sustainable construction practices has infused the industry with innovations in health, comfort, efficiency, materials, energy systems, and integrated building systems. Come check out some of these advances and see how they have been used in our community in conjunction with other time proven design elements to produce extraordinary human habitat.

Each home will be hosted by the owners and/or builder, so visitors will be able to talk with them and discuss the home's successes and challenges. This year's tour will showcase buildings with: Passive solar designs, solar electric systems and product, green roofs, earth plaster interiors, recycled glass tile, high thermal mass recycled ICF building systems, straw bale infill, radiantly heated stained floors, and much more.

See a list of the homes and businesses and download a map at, or pick up a copy of Sept. 29th "Reader" for free tour information.

Sponsored by the Sandpoint Transition Initiative and the Inland Chapter of the Northwest EcoBuilding Guild. Questions contact Gini Bowers 208-263-5447 or email Bruce Millard at
