The fifth annual Green Home Tour features six local new and existing homes that showcase green living techniques. In addition to seeing green practices at work, tour goers can talk to on-site experts and pick up tips on how to green their own living environments.
The homes are available for tour at your convenience, between 1-5pm, Sunday, October 14. There are six homes on this year’s tour. Three are near Omaha’s midtown–three are near Elkhorn. If you are unable to tour them all, check out the information sheets below to see which homes are of most interest to you! Join this event on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/events/321571667940549/.
Home Tour passes are $5 per person and can be purchased at any of the participating homes. Each pass grants access to all six homes. Purchase tickets online at http://greenhometour2012.eventbrite.com/.

For homeowners wishing to apply greening and energy saving measures to their own homes, a collection of case studies has been started for the homes on this year’s tour. The ‘learn more’ link under each home above will link you directly to that home’s case study. For compiled case studies and explanation of the terms used, see below.
