“Green Homes are Better for People, Planet, Pocketbook.”

One-hour presentations followed by Q & A, repeated at 10AM, NOON, and 2PM, by Dallas’ own Beth Johnson, REALTOR, Keller Williams Realty.

Assoc. of REALTORS (GREEN designation).  Beth will discuss and illustrate with many photos and data why home performance is important, who thinks so, and trends on cost-effective better-than-code new construction elements and existing-home renovations for improved energy efficiency, durability, indoor air quality, and water conservation that make sense physically, economically, and for resale marketing. Upgrades from “fast, easy and cheap,” to “next steps,” to “comprehensive improvements” to thermal envelope and mechanical systems.

Host Comments

TreeHouse is built upon the idea that all homes should be sustainable, beautiful, and healthy. We bring progressive products, great design, human-centered services, and leading edge technology together under one roof. Home improvement is in need of a rethink. Products and services often fall short of our needs and expectations in quality, health, and sustainability. As a result, homes are not built with human beings and our surroundings in mind. TreeHouse is reinventing home improvement with the twin goals of ecological and human health.

Our core principles are applied to everything in the store. From thoughtful and innovative products to comprehensive, high-quality services - every element is designed to build a better home. The TreeHouse Dallas location is the first energy-positive big-box store in the world, meaning the store will generate excess renewable energy using solar panels, battery packs, and cutting-edge architectural design, then send unused energy back into the city grid.
