Final LEED Open House

Saturday, March 28, marks the fourth and final in a four-part series of educational open houses for Sturgeon Bay’s first LEED-registered home, designed by architect Virge Temme of Sturgeon Bay and built by Ahnapee Construction of Algoma. LEED, which stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a program developed by the U.S Green Building Council to help create high-efficiency, environmentally responsible buildings and neighborhoods. This final open house will focus on the home’s solar electric systems and the LEED process. LEED Rater Tom Krawzcyk of TJH Energy Consulting will conduct final testing on the home and answer questions about the program. The house, owned by Chris and Dave Kellems, is located at 120 Alabama St. in Sturgeon Bay and is expected to earn LEED Platinum certification, the highest possible within the system. Open house is scheduled from 10 am to 2 pm and is hosted by the Climate Change Coalition of Door County. Donations to their education fund will be gratefully received.
