Explore zHome on Green Home Tour
March 8, 2011
Discover eco-conscious features at zHome in the Issaquah Highlands during a regional tour of “green” residences next month.
The project is a featured destination on the upcoming Northwest EcoBuilding Guild Green Home Tour. The event is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 16-17.
The tour includes in-depth education at residences throughout the area, so participants can learn tips about reducing energy costs and creating a more eco-friendly home environment.
Organizers offer more information, and a list of featured homes, at the guild website, www.ecobuilding.org.
The city spearheaded the development of zHome. Howland Development Issaquah — a joint venture of Shoreline developer Howland Homes and Ichijo USA, a subsidiary of Japanese homebuilder Ichijo Co. — handles the construction. Ichijo USA financed the project.
Dignitaries broke ground on zHome in September 2008, but the recession delayed construction until April 2010. The residences should be completed by late spring.
