Showcase your project on the NW Green Home Tour
For dozens of site hosts, the annual Northwest Green Home Tour is a chance to educate the public about green building and connect with potential clients. This year the tour will be offered virtually due to continued vigilance related to COVID 19, but we also hope to be able to offer some “in-person” home tours. This allows us the opportunity to show sites from a larger geographic area and those currently inaccessible by other means in addition to giving visitors the opportunity to see some sites up close and personal. The virtual experience allows for an increased audience size and site options. If you have a residential project or green business (past, present or future) that you would like to showcase on the 2022 Tour, register now to get the greatest benefit from the event’s extensive publicity and advertising reach.
To be considered for the tour, please click the button to submit your online application. Be prepared with your contact info and information about what makes your site “green” at a minimum.
After you submit your application, our selection committee will review your site. Projects of every “shade” of green are encouraged to apply. If we are unable to include your project on the tour, we will notify you and refund any fees you have paid.
New in 2022!
- Virtual tour sessions will be offered from 9:00 am to 11:30 am on Saturday May 14. This 2.5 hour tour session will feature sites in breakout rooms on a single Zoom call. Visitors will self-navigate from room to room.
- Live tour sites should plan to be open from 11:00 am – 5:00 pm on Saturday May 14th. You, along with the homeowner, will need to determine what COVID health & safety measures you require beyond those mandated by the State of WA.
- This year you will also have the opportunity to either hop into the virtual zoom call in the morning before your live tour or create a Facebook or Instagram Live feed for a portion of your in-person tour that will be linked to the NW Green Home Tour webpage.
What to Expect:
There will be a site host orientation in April 2022. One of your team who will be hosting the site must attend. The orientation will likely be presented virtually.
Provide information and photos of your site in a timely fashion for publicity on the tour website and social media.
We will help you to with green feature signs for you in-person tour. Virtual site hosts should be prepared with photos, videos and/or 360 walkthroughs to show and educate visitors about the green features of your site.
The NW Green Home Tour is a collaboration and contract between the NW Ecobuilding Guild and you, as green building professionals. We will all work together to promote the tour and draw in new visitors to become green building enthusiasts (and customers!)
