Experience the Different shades of Green in Champaign County! New home construction is constantly evolving to meet the demands and expectations of the consumer. Over the years the Home Builders Association of East Central Illinois would host the Showcase of Homes to introduce new trends and designs that were available when building a new home. This year The Home Builders Association of East Central Illinois has joined forces to build a single home for The Green Build Showcase. The members of the homebuilders association have been collaborating for the last several months to bring Champaign County this unique property along with several seminars throughout the showcase to help educate the community. Take advantange of this great opportunity to preview a truly “green” built home and to see first hand all of the options available to build a more energy efficient and eco friendly home.
The model home is located in Urbana’s South Ridge Subdivision, at 1711 Horizon Lane, in southeast Urbana. It will be open on Friday, September 16, 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday, September 17 and 18, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
In addition to the Green Build Showcase, a second home will be open to the public. Chad Vliet of Vliet Builder’s LLC will be available to answer questions on how his homes are standing out front when it comes to affordable, energy conscious homes. Chad’s home is located in South Ridge Subdivision as well and the address is 3407 Deer Ridge. Make it a point to stop by and view this affordable, energy efficient home.
If you prefer a rural subdivision with city amenities, Chad Vliet has another energy efficient home in Landis Farm Subdivision that has a lot of the same energy conscious features as the property in South Ridge. The property is located at 2501 Fairfield Drive and can be viewed by appointment.
Finally, in Northeast Urbana near the intersection of Highcross Road and Airport Road a unique subdivision has been developed in the Historic Big Grove of Urbana. Brickhouses Road Subdivision features 7 one acre lots (approximate in size). This subdivision was developed with the vision that all homes follow the “zero net energy” plans.
