A visit from Sam Adams, the mayor.

We took the weekend off from our normal construction process and showed Sam Adams, the mayor of Portland, around the house. He was surprisingly well versed in green building practices.

Sam Adams!

Sam took an active interest in the challenges we’ve faced during the permitting and inspection process and wanted to know which areas the city could improve.

He really liked our Jefferson stairs.

As well as the composting toilet (our contribution to alleviating combined sewer overflows (CSOs) into the Willamette River every time it rains).

It was exciting to show our project to such an important policy maker; Mayor Adams was very supportive of the project’s goals and asked us to stay in touch as the project progresses. We’re always looking to share our ideas with the public and we feel very honored that Sam Adams would stop by the project on his day off to take a tour. We hope The Mayor will continue to push green building forward—keeping Portland on the forefront of sustainable cities.
