Three Hammer & Hand green building projects selected for 2011 Build It Green! Home Tour

The City of Portland will feature an ADU, a deep energy retrofit, and a duplex rental transformation by Hammer & Hand.

We’re happy to announce that three Hammer & Hand projects will be showcased on this year’s Build It Green! Home Tour, presented by the City of Portland on September 24.  The honored projects are:

1. Super-Efficient Accessory Dwelling Unit.  A celebration of the synergy between high performance and small footprint, this detached ADU designed by Departure Design incorporates Passive House strategies to achieve huge energy savings.


2. Energy Retrofit of “Clean, Green, Dream Home”.  This project, carried out in partnership with Imagine Energy, transformed the energy performance of an historic Victorian home in Portland’s inner Southeast.


3. Transformation of Duplex Rental.  Hammer & Hand took a dilapidated eyesore and orchestrated its rebirth as an asset for the neighborhood and model for green construction and sustainable design.


The Build It Green! Home Tour shares twenty noteworthy green residential projects (new and remodeled) with hundreds of tour-goers every year.  Mark your calendars for Saturday, September 24, 11am – 5pm.  It’s a great event featuring some of the coolest projects by Portland’s green building community.
