NEXTbuilding Forum Presentation: Alternative Building Materials
As we continue our evolving understanding of building science principles
as they relate to high performance buildings and reducing our built form’s impact on the planet it is ironic that “everything old is new again”. The question becomes are natural, locally/regionally sourced, non-toxic, bio-based wall assemblies possible in our cold weather climate region of the U.S? Can these types of building envelope systems be effective without causing hygro-thermal performance and assembly durability issues? Join us for a NBF conclave live webinar presentation by a leading national expert that will provide an understanding of two fundamental natural materials: straw and clay. This presentation will describe material properties and a methodology for using each of them appropriately in cold, wet climates and still avoid moisture, rot and mold issues. Individuals pursuing local straw bale projects will be on hand to share their knowledge as well.
Come and learn how yes, in fact it is possible!

Statistics show that staged homes sell 50% faster than non-staged homes (and for more money), but what exactly is home staging? Why should you stage your home before you list to sell? Why should you ask your realtor about staging? What happens when you stage? This class will help you understand the basics of home staging, why it’s important, how you as the homeowner are involved and basic principles you can apply to your own home if you are looking to sell. Topics will include the top 10 reasons to stage, the role colors play in staging, cost/benefits of staging and the 3 keys to selling your home. We’ll explore current listings together and help train your eye to see the impact of a well-staged home. Whether your home is on the market now or you are thinking of listing in the future, come and learn from a professional home stager!
