Sustainable Connections green home tours returns


Sustainable Connections Green Home Tours and Talks returns Saturday, June 3 for its first in-person event since the pandemic. The tour will showcase a variety of homes built to be environmentally friendly.

Participants can spend the day taking self-guided tours at five homes in Bellingham where they will have the opportunity to meet the builders and designers involved in creating the home, according to a Sustainable Connections press release. The homes include a net zero energy home and Whatcom County’s first certified “Passive House,” which is a highly energy-efficient home. A duplex unit and three accessory dwelling units will also be shown during the tour.

Instinct Builders, [bundle] design studio, Envision Residential and Commercial Remodeling, and Bellingham Bay Builders will be part of this year’s tour. 

Two workshops will be held at the Sustainable Connections office, 1701 Ellis Street in Bellingham. The hour-long presentations will center on energy efficiency from CAZ Construction at 11 a.m. and The Community Energy Challenge at 1 p.m. 

The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 3. The tour and workshop are $10 per adult and free for children. To purchase tickets, visit
