The Commons is designed to reach beyond today’s highest green building standards and become the first U.S. home to meet the Living Building Challenge. The Commons will generate all its own energy – without fossil fuels, reclaim all its water, be free of unhealthy materials and be a place of beauty and community.
A collaboration between two brothers, Dustin and Garrett, both from the NW having grown up in rural Washington state, about an hour North of Seattle. With seven years separating them, they fought tooth and nail growing up, but as they’ve aged (and arguably matured) they’ve begun to appreciate each other quite a bit, so much so they’ve decided to start a collective (res communis design), build a house and live in it together.
This will be an in depth and highly educational tour. To RSVP please visit us our GreenPDX events page.
Join us for lunch discussion after, too!
