The next AIA-SWO construction tour features the CASL House, a model for sustainable living under construction at 1801 Moss St. The project has two phases: Phase 1 is the retrofit, in progress now, of the original 1920's Bungalow into a state of the art space with living, dining, kitchen, bath, and storage capacity. Phase 2 will be a three bedroom addition that CASL co-directors will live in while conducting research, hosting tours, and facilitating on-going learning opportunities. CASL is working towards meeting the rigorous Passive House standard of home construction and is really close to achieving that goal. The house will provide a model green home for students and the community while also being used for demonstration, learning, and gathering.
The Center for the Advancement of Sustainable Living (CASL) is a student group at the University of Oregon dedicated to teaching people how to live more sustainably. CASL does this by 1) offering students opportunities for hands-on learning through design, construction, and experimentation at the CASL House; and 2) hosting workshops, lectures and social events that connect students and community members, and providing a venue for learning how to employ sustainable solutions in one’s home.
If you plan on attending the construction tour, RSVP by noon Tuesday, April 23rd to Julie Romig at firstname.lastname@example.org or 541-683-8661 extension 3. Space is limited, so contact Julie right away.
