Z-home final tours

Please join us for a final tour of zHome, America’s first zero net-energy townhome development, on October 14th and 15th.

The zHome project proved that it is possible for mainstream residences to be built that are net zero energy, use over 70% less water, and have outstanding indoor air quality by utilizing only low-toxicity materials.

As part of the project, one of the 10 units was leased to the City at no cost to be used as an educational center. During the last four years, the zHome Stewardship Center has served as a community resource and gathering space for educational tours, retreats and meetings. One of the goals of the project was to continue to educate and inspire, and through our collective efforts over 13,000 persons have been educated on leading sustainable building practices.

Learn about the technologies, planning and design of the zHome project as well as the results of the project’s energy and water performance over the last 4 years. Free tours of the zHome Stewardship Center are available at the following times:
Location: 1715 Ninth Place N.E., Issaquah, WA 98029
