Announcing the launch of the #1920sMakeoverATL Showhouse Pre-Construction Virtual Reality Tour! Hear the birds sing and the music play, tour the project, and it's like you're THERE, from the comfort of your office or even living room! Visit each room and stop to learn about leading edge materials, products and practices from our on-site experts. Don't forget to click on the drone image to fly 400 feet up into the air for great views of the house and midtown Atlanta!

The tour is now live, and content will keep growing.  Current topics include air filtrationradon and vapor control layers, blower door testing, asbestos testing, and going electric for heating and hot water systems

We are excited to be working with Roger Kripp and the Mythos Media team to bring you a 360 degree multimedia, video, audio and descriptive media experience! This is one of THREE virtual reality tours we will be sharing throughout this this deep energy whole house retrofit project. In addition to the pre-construction phase, we will show the work in progress as well as a final "reveal." 

Matt Hoots of Sawhorse, Inc. and his team and Project Partners will be be gutting this charming 1920s Ansley Park Atlanta home down to the studs and then rebuilding it back with a goal to make this the most energy-efficient house in this zip code - and a Passive House! As the project’s Media Partner, Rate It Green will be sharing the team’s progress through videos, blog posts, and more, including three self-guided virtual reality tours! Stay tuned for more information weekly or even daily!
