The Pittsburgh Green House, a project of ACTION-Housing, Inc., is a 110-year-old home that has been renovated as a weatherization training and educational facility where contractors and the general public can learn about residential energy and water savings and making homes healthier. Visitors can browse the resource center for information on do-it-yourself projects, contractors, and retrofit financing; engage in interactive educational activities; discover useful facts on informational signage throughout the building; and interact with our knowledgeable staff.

ACTION-Housing staff, regional experts, and a variety of local nonprofits and product specialists will teach a range of classes geared toward the general public on a rotating schedule. Contractors can receive hands-on training including building science, weatherization skills, blower door technology, and Building Performance Institute (BPI) certification in a typical regional home preparing them for career opportunities in the residential weatherization and retrofit market. Some courses are free, while others have associated fees. Take a look at the calendar to find a class that interests you.

    Finally got to come to one of these. Fun and informative. Some gaps in the formal presentation's information were filled by the audience members' knowledge, or they had to refer to another source--my only complaint. Very valuable nonetheless, and the Green House folks pulled it off quite nicely. Looking forward to more.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
