Get a sneak peek, first-hand look at the latest Hermiston student-built home before the public open house on June 9!

This is the third energy-efficient, EPS-rated home built by the Columbia Basin Student Homebuilders Program (CBSHBP) and Energy Trust of Oregon is hosting a guided CE tour of the home on June 8, the day before the public grand opening on Friday, June 9.

This tour will help you understand how this home (and the 8 future homes that will be built by CBSHBP) can be a good fit for your homebuyer clients. Join us as we guide you on a tour of this home in the Fieldstone Crossing Subdivision and find out how it achieved above code standards and what that means for homebuyers: A more comfortable, durable home with healthier air quality and cost-saving energy efficiency that the homebuyer can feel good about.

“Our students are excited for the opportunity to show the completed home,” said Curt Berger, student home builder director. “We’re trying to give the students the best experience we can. The higher quality the home they’re building, the more they learn, and these are really nice homes. We encourage community members to stop by to see the home."

Learning Opportunities

  • See first-hand what above-code features are included in this EPS home
  • Gain access to energy efficiency resources that you can pass along to your clients
  • Learn how to connect your new and existing home customers with Energy Trust builders/contractors and incentives
  • Translate energy efficiency into health/comfort/durability/savings benefits that will resonate with different clients
