Tower entry

. . . the end of construction, that is. Our home is nearing completion – or at least near enough that we’re planning our move. Amazing – after four years of planning, designing and building.

A Visible Green Home® Tour is  planned for June 18, 8 am–6 pm. Register here.

The tour will focus on the home’s interior including finish materials, surfaces, lighting and “the Red List” of 600 toxic chemicals to be avoided in a Living Building Challenge project. The US Bureau of Labor and Statistics suggest we spend upwards of 90% of our time indoors – but, as you will learn, we routinely create a toxic indoor environment through standard construction practices. Tour participants will learn from experts how the indoor environment of Burh Becc will support rather than compromise the health and the well being of its occupants.

Tours begin every hour on the hour; pre-registration is required, since space is limited. The last tour begins at 5 pm.

Some new photos in our gallery show the recent progress: drywall, tile floors, exterior stucco. Still a month or two of work ahead. But the end is in sight. Awesome!
