This is a free Saturday tour approximately 4 hours. They will provide snacks and beverages. Transportation between their factory and model home will be provided.

I'm very excited to tell you that we will be touring the Deltec Homes facility and one of their small and sustainable model homes. It's a customized "Green" Tour just for US! We will also have the opportunity to speak with their Designers, Engineers, and Green Building Experts.

Deltec is focused on not only building green, but building green homes (Net Zero) and sharing their knowledge about green building. There is a lot we can learn from them. Be sure to bring your questions!

A little about them...
They build unique, high-end "round" homes (yurt on steroids)... "We use FSC certified wood sources as well we build every one of our homes with 100% Renewable Energy. Further, we have recently reached a new level of efficiency, over 81%, where only 18.2% of our manufacturing process goes to the landfill. Our goal is 100% by 2016."

    I appreciate the time and effort given to us from Deltec and Kris et al. The info and tour were very informative. I can see Deltec helping me through the process of building a quality, ethically built home.

    I don't understand: what is the reason for the change in venue?

    July 31, 2013

    • Kristen S.

      I guess they figured that venue better for communication before and after the tours.

    It's exciting to find such a great group of people interested in sustainability. My interest is to design and build a home integrated with a permaculture overlay. I'm looking forward to hearing more about tiny homes.

    If this was a weekend event I would be able to make it up to Asheville, maybe we could do a joint meetup with my group in SC http://www.meetup.com/Green-People-of-Upstate-South-Carolina/

    Very excited to finally get this on the calendar! They will be giving us a tour of both their facility where they manufacture their houses AND a completed "small and green" model home. Transportation between the facilities will be provided as well as snacks and beverages.

    Spread the word! Let's fill those buses!

    June 18, 2013

  • Kristen S.

    Hey James! It will be a Saturday event. Our calendar is filling up so fast I'm trying to fit everything in. June's looking booked (Tim Watson, 6/20 meeting, then WNCGBC networking) so late July is my new target for Deltec. In addition to this, I'm also looking into 2 tours of other tiny house communities, a workshop, our first project, and a few other things. Good stuff! Hope to see you soon...

    June 4, 2013

  • Kristen S.

    I understand the need for a date, just trying to get an idea of interest for now. The date will be posted soon. It will need to be on a Saturday. I'm thinking late June. Maybe the 22nd? We have a meeting on the 20th and the WNCGBC event on the 27th. Would that be an issue of too much of a good thing that week?

    Please post your replies here. Thanks all!
