CATEC House on Auction Block

Posted by lbanner on August 31, 2007

Students of the carpentry program at CATEC built a house last year that’s now on the auction block. The house is currently located behind CATEC, off Rio Road in Albemarle County, and there is an open house scheduled for Saturday, September 8th, 9am-noon. The auction itself is scheduled for Saturday, September 15th at 10am, with a viewing from 8:00-9:30am. The auction will take place in the vicinity of the home behind CATEC.

Last year’s CATEC house was built following the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) guidelines for sustainable buildings. The guidelines promote a more energy efficient, and environmentally friendly building. Several “Green” features of the CATEC house include: Hardi-plank Siding, Standing Seam Metal Roof, Non-toxic Cellulose Wall Insulation, Low VOC Caulks and Adhesives, Low E Argon-filled Window, and Energy Star Light Fixtures.

For more information on LEED, look to a C-VILLE Weekly story on LEED, August 14 issue, and its role in a number of local projects including the new Belvedere development project off Rio Road.
