Green Home Makeover



Want to get inspired and learn more about green renovations?    


The Green Home Makeover is a key demonstration project of the County Court Sustainable Neighbourhood Retrofit Action Plan (SNAP). 

As part of the project, one County Court neighbourhood home was renovated to demonstrate affordable green home renovations that any home can adopt. The Green Home Makeover was used to:
  
  • Showcase innovative eco-friendly home improvements and retrofits for any home
  • Educate homeowners and the building industry on new technology installation and maintenance 
  • Support monitoring and evaluation of innovative sustainable technologies 
  • Provide an on-the-ground illustration of retrofit benefits and connect people with how-to information

The Green Home Makeover features a suite of green indoor and outdoor home products and renovations including:

 • High efficiency HVAC system;

 • Insulation and weatherization;

 • Energy efficient appliances;

 • Energy Star windows;

 • Energy efficient doors;

 • Low flow toilets and fixtures;

 • Rain barrels and rain garden;

 • Permeable driveway and walkways; and

 • Fusion Landscaping in the front yard
