Join us for an exclusive behind the scenes virtual tour of the Burh Becc at Beacon Springs in Ann Arbor. Burh Becc, meaning, in Old English, a dwelling by a creek. The home is registered to pursue the Living Building Challenge standards of the International Living Future Institute and is a registered LEED project, aiming for Platinum certification. The project is tracking Zero Energy Capable certification with nearly 4,000 kwh of energy produced over usage to date. Come tour this home and discuss better materials, net zero energy, solar energy, reduced HERS index ratings, high performance HVAC, improved thermal envelopes, water conversation, health, beauty and more! We will wrap up with words of encouragement and lessons learned from the team and homeowner.
