Throughout the tour Mayor Kelly learned about the project and the energy efficient qualities that make it unique. He impressed all in attendance with his vast knowledge of residential home construction especially those working in the industry. Inquiring about each and every component Mayor Kelly was gained a solid understanding as to how the home will function when it is complete.

After the tour Mayor Kelly posed for a few pictures with the staff from Denim Homes and the Nova Scotia Home Builders Association and shared some comments about the project. He is very optimistic about how this program can help reduce the carbon footprint of our community.

Mayor Kelly promised to return when the homes are complete and is eager to see the finished product.
