Yestermorrow Design/Build School: Green Rehab and Deep Energy Retrofits, August 5-6
Event Description

There are about 125 million existing homes in the U.S. representing the most significant and yet challenging opportunities to save energy and reduce our carbon footprint.

But how do we approach green remodeling differently than new construction?

This course is a “soup-to-nuts” approach to green remodeling, covering all of the essential principles of building science on projects ranging from weatherization to gut rehab to deep energy retrofits. Day 1 will focus on green remodeling principles and the tools available to employ them. Day 2 will be driven by case studies and your projects! 

They teach design and building as an integrated process through hands-on education through nearly 100 classes in Land & Community Planning, Whole Structure Design/Build, Building Systems & Building Science, Woodworking & Craft and Tutorials.  

Students who come to Yestermorrow are place-makers or change-makers; DIYers and professionals; undergraduates and lifelong learners; hobbyists; and those seeking a career or life change. Courses are taught by top architects, builders, craftspeople, and permaculture practitioners from around the country and designed to empower students to create intentional and inspired pieces and places that enrich life and enhance our world.
