Cathy and I have been giving impromptu project tours on occasion. We decided a while back to step it up a notch, to stage an open house, or better yet a green rehab tour. The question was, when to do so?
With the last layer of insulation installed we were about to close up the walls and ceiling. Because the thermal envelope assembly is such an important component of our green rehab, we decided that now was the perfect time to send out invitations.
We were not sure what attendance to expect. We were surprised with the turnout … very surprised.
Cathy and I were busy non-stop, showing a constant stream of visitors around. Because it was so busy I had difficulties keeping track of the visitor numbers. I counted 45 but am sure that I missed a few.
We are looking forward to a repeat a few months down the road. That time, we will be better prepared!
If you missed the open house, but would have liked to attend the next time, leave a comment. I will make sure I put you on our e-mail list for the next open house announcement.
