Event Description

USGBC Texas South Region is hosting at tour of a historic home in the King William Neighborhood.

The house at the corner of King William and Turner was built in 1863 and was added on several time before the house was subdivided to have 6 separate apartments. The house fell into disrepair and remained abandoned for many years. It was bought in 2013 and the new owner, Juan Fernandez, wanted to restore the house to it’s former glory. While beginning restoration, a neighbor brought over an old photo that showed a grand entry porch with 4 columns that had long been removed. Rebuilding the entry was added to the construction plans. The old add-on’s were removed and a new kitchen wing was built. All renovations were built to meet LEED Standards and the home achieved LEED Silver Certification.

The tour will include “before” photos to compare to the restored areas, as well as a review of the LEED Checklist for the project and how Historic Preservation and LEED can be achieved simultaneously. 

LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a green certification program for building design, construction, operations and maintenance - and the most widely used green building rating system in the world. This building rating system, and LEED certifications for industry professionals, are both administered by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
