About the Event

REGISTER

Beyond the buzzwords, this class breaks down the how and why of sustainability in homes. Instructor Alissa Pier, AIA, shows  us how old homes are in fact green. Alissa's presentation talks about sustainability as it relates to materials, community, and quality of life. You'll learn how old homes can adapt to change and reduce cost of living, and you'll get a thorough introduction to traditional building materials, good design, and energy efficiency.

This class is part of the Education program of Rethos: Places Reimagined. We are proud to offer a variety of classes for homeowners, students, Realtors, and others who love old buildings. The Rethos education program is funded in part by the Arts & Cultural Legacy Fund through the Minnesota Historical Society.
