Once again Austin Energy Green Building and the Texas Solar Energy Society collaborate to showcase homes and projects that are designed and built to high standards of energy efficiency, comfort and attractive design. This year we have 8 homes, one duplex and one multifamily project. Learn from the homeowners and their professionals. This is a terrific resource for learning how to live comfortably in the hot Central Texas climate.
The guidebook is $20 and is your ticket to the tour. One book per person; children 12 and under free.
*Guidebooks are available at the following locations through the day of the tour:

*Want to just see one house instead of the whole tour?  $5, at the door, cash please.
Barley & Pfeiffer Architects Homes on the Cool House Tour:
318 Ridgewood Drive:
6001 Bull Creek Road, 78757:
This newly constructed two-story bungalow was designed and built to respect the character of the neighborhood, while providing ample space for a growing family. The house draws heavily on passive design for its comfort and energy efficiency, proving that planning is the most important part of any construction project.
