After seeing the YERT film, people often ask, "What can I do now?" And the Pittsburgh Green House is a great place to find some important answers to that vital question. The screening starts at 6pm, but you can swing by for a tour of the house at 5:30pm. Here's a blurb about the Pittsburgh Green House:
The Pittsburgh Green House, a project of ACTION-Housing, Inc., is a 110-year-old home that has been renovated as a weatherization training and educational facility where contractors and the general public can learn about residential energy and water savings and making homes healthier. http://www.pittsburghgreenhouse.org/
