Looking for an excuse to go to the Mall of America these days? The Good & Green Showhouse is a 3,000-square-foot craftsman-style showhouse built in the mall that features stylish eco-friendly ideas that are easy on the environment and perfect for any home.
HOME Magazine is launching The 2008 Good & Green Showhouse at Mall of America this holiday season. The house will spotlight building materials, products and appliances that create a low environmental impact while maintaining high style. It will exemplify green living that is simple and attainable without sacrificing good design or state-of-the-art products.
Tours of the Good & Green Showhouse will run from November 28 to January 1 and are free and open to the public, with a $3 suggested donation. All proceeds from tour donations will benefit Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity, which is building the Twin Cities’s first LEED-certified Habitat for Humanity home in Crystal.
