LaHouse Mobile, a new travelling demonstration house, will be outside the Green Building Resource Center in the parking lot adjacent to the Houston Permitting Center and open for free tours.  It displays energy-saving, hurricane resistant, termite resistant, moisture and decay resistant and healthy home solutions.  It includes a photovoltaic solar energy system that powers the unit's lighting, fan, outlets and display monitor.

It has two "rooms" - one depicts a high performance new construction building system; the other reveals a variety of improvements that can be made to existing houses.  Informative signs and free educational Extension Service publications are included.  Building Science Educator Bill Robinson will be available to answer questions about the techniques and materials used to build the house.

Green buildings provide greater energy efficiency and save money for owners and users,
and the reuse of materials is better for the environment.  Ultimately, they foster a happier
and healthier workplace for employees.  We welcome your participation in these events and
your interest and support for green building efforts across Houston .  To learn more visit
