March – In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb?

March – how did that happen so fast?

It’s already been a full few months and March is definitely coming in like a lion. We will see about the “out like a lamb” part. March is a big month for Green
Home Coach, Green Gab, and my family.

Tulsa Home Builders Association hosted “Getting Started with Green Homes” – a half day class I was honored to teach to a great group. In it, we covered the basics of what a “green home” is, how to market and sell green homes, and how green your current projects may already be. I especially enjoyed the new module “What Makes a Green Home Green” – Green homes are holistic approaches to building and remodeling which offer healthier, safer and more comfortable living spaces than many traditionally-built or code-built homes.  While building or remodeling a green home does not need to be hard, it does require attention to detail and careful planning to ensure all the needed elements are met.  This module outlines the basics of a green home and how it is accomplished and the benefits and value of a green home.

Interested in this workshop for your group?

Coming up in March, I will be speaking at the Metro East Home & Garden Show in Edwardsville IL at 1:30 pm on both Saturday, March 17 and Sunday, March 18. Join me to learn how to have a better home – a home that works for you! Learn how tweaking what you do or buy, offers opportunities to benefit your family, your community, and your world. Just a few simple choices will have you on the way to a better (and greener) home as you go about your normal maintenance, repair, and replacements. I’ll also be doing a book signing for Living Green Effortlessly: Simple Choices for a Better Home. I’d love to see familiar faces in the audience!

A few of us from the Central Oklahoma Home Builders Association Professional Women in Building Council will be heading to Springfield MO late March to volunteer at their Build My Future event. We are planning to host a similar event in Oklahoma City in 2019 and are excited to participate and learn more. Interested in helping with the OKC event?

The biggest event of the year, much less this month, is celebrating the marriage of my daughter to her wonderful betrothed!

Hope your March brings you the “luck of the Irish” as green reigns in March!
