Welcome to the 15th annual High Performance Home Tour (formerly known as the Green Home Tour)…A VIRTUAL TOUR FOR 2020!

Sponsored by the High Performance Building Council, a joint council of the Home Builders Associations (HBAs) of Durham, Orange, and Chatham Counties and of Raleigh-Wake County. This tour is a free, virtual event on April 25-26 and May 2-3.

Excellent examples of green home construction at various levels of national certification are included in this year’s tour, from National Green Building Standard to EcoSelect and/or ENERGY STAR®. These programs are detailed in this publication in easy-to-understand terms. Each home in the Tour is third-party inspected and verified to ensure that it meets the minimum certification requirements established by its specified program.

Triangle home buyers looking for healthy, energy efficient, and cost-effective homes are in for a treat when touring the 2020 entries. The book will be online the week prior to the tour and each home will have a link to a professional 3D Tour! As homes on the tour may be in various stages of construction or even owner-occupied, this annual Open House is a unique opportunity to see first-hand some of the innovative high-performance building practices at work in our area. If you are interested in a particular home or builder, there will be an opportunity to request the builder contact you.

The High Performance Home Tour Committee invites you to virtually tour every home. Take notes, make lists of questions to ask builders and reach out to them for answers. Happy Touring to one and all!
