October Headlines
 
Backyard Home Walking Tours

90 people signed up to walk through Evanston’s streets, alleys, and backyard homes with us on October 20!

Two attendees' comments stayed with us:

“This home is bigger than I thought."

"EDC is creating a real sense of community through today's tours.”

An award-winning home - “Enable” - built by EDC President Dick Co is featured in the new book Downsize: Living large in a small house by Sheri Koones.
 

Enable earned 1st place in Market Potential at the 2017 U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon. This home features the same structural insulated panels (SIPs) that frame EDC backyard homes.
