Green Builder Media Announces Launch of VISION House Sussex: Sustainable and Attainable Homes

Lake City, Colo., May 11, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Green Builder Media and national award-winning builder Tim O’Brien Homes have joined forces to design and construct a small demonstration compound in the Village of Sussex. The VISION House Sussex compound is part of a mixed-use, master-planned development with 300 home sites and 60 acres reserved for community amenities.
The builder will use one of the homes in the compound as its showroom model and will collect performance data on the other four homes for testing, analysis, and case study purposes.
