May 27, 2017, 10 am till Noon, – Morales Luginbill Residence

Oakley, possible LEED Gold home. It is a compact house on a small infill site in a walkable neighborhood. The large glass openings are concentrated on the south side to take advantage of passive solar. The exterior walls are offset double stud with spray foam insulation to limit thermal bridging and provide an air tight envelope. The heating system is hot water radiant. The cooling system uses high-efficiency mini-split heat pumps. There were two large oak trees on the site that had to be taken down. We harvested the lumber from them on site and have used it for the trim and stairs in the house. Here’s the house web site, “On what had been a small patch of grass in Oakley, stands a comfortable and efficient home. LEED for Homes was the tool that measured the success of its ambition to be environmentally sustainable.”

Cost: $15 per person. Free to USGBC Ohio members.

Contact Chuck Lohre to receive reminders or register for the tour at or call 513-260-9025.

From Vision to Reality- Smart Cities and Civic Engagement

Join us on May 24 to explore how municipalities can further local sustainability by engaging community and stakeholders and take it from vision to reality!

In 2016, Columbus announced a winner of an unprecedented $40 Million Smart City Challenge aimed at providing a spark for social equity and revolutionize their transportation systems. The Same year, the City of Indianapolis held a 24-hour monster brain-storming Climathon session with the citizens who cared about climate change and wanted to make their corner of the world a better place (you read it right, 24 hours- no sleep!).
