Live greener, and save money, too!

Are you interested in living greener?

Tomorrow night we're offering a special workshop on practical, sensible ways to make your living space greener and healthier.

When you hear phrases like "green design" and "sustainable technologies," you may think about new construction with high-tech energy-saving gizmos, but as you probably know, reusing a building is the best way to go green on a big scale! Of course, existing buildings can and should be sensitively upgraded so that they operate as efficiently as possible. At tomorrow night's workshop, Jay Tovey, president of Tovey Co., a Certified Green Professional and a nationally recognized expert on energy efficiency in home remodeling, will share practical tips on making existing houses and renovation projects greener and healthier for you and for the planet. He'll provide specific tips about greening historic houses, but the workshop is applicable to old and new houses alike. Don't miss it!

The workshop will be held this Wednesday, November 18, at the Rochester Home Builders Association, 20 Wildbriar Road in Henrietta, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Tickets are $25 advance, $30 at the door, free with new membership in The Landmark Society.
Advance registration is strongly recommended - buy online or call us at 546-7029.

Architects can earn two AIA CES credits for attending this workshop.
