Join guest host, Mark Johnson FAIA, on Wednesday, June 6, 2012, for #kbtribechat LIVE from the 723 Spring Street LEED Platinum home in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Mark will be talking with Scott Phillips, green expert and owner of the home. Scott’s extensive background in the building products industry will inspire our discussionabout the home’s kitchen and bath products that optimize water savings, reduce and monitor energy use, contribute to LEED points, and have led to his family’s adoption of a green lifestyle. This #kbtribechat will incorporate a multimedia offering of resources including videos, photography, a Pinterest board, and downloadable Google SketchUp 3D models of the home and interiors.
723 Spring Street became the City of Ann Arbor’s ﬁrst LEED Platinum house. It is designed to weave into the surrounding neighborhood in style and function, while showcasing many different types of green building methods that make the home ultra-efficient. In addition to ICF Construction and Geo-thermal Heating, the home also has an 8.6kW solar array and is near net-zero energy usage. Advanced building techniques and sustainable products abound in this lovely home. Don’t miss this exciting #kbtribechat.
NOTE: If you are in the Ann Arbor area on June 9-10, the 723 Spring Street home will be open to the public during MISSION ZERO FEST, along with the Mission Zero House, America’s oldest historic rehab/retrofit home to reach net-zero energy usage.
