SINCE OCTOBER 2010, the wheels have been in motion on the This Really Old House Goes Green project – which is following, in minute detail, the green renovation of an average war-time house in Brantford, Ontario.
Unlike any other mass media coverage of a green reno, this is not quick before-and-after account. Our mandate for the TROHGG project, with weekly installments published every Thursday in The Expositor’s Brant Connection, and simultaneously on TheGreenHub.ca, is to document each step so that homeowners know exactly what they would be facing if undergoing such an endeavour.
Part of the challenge – and fun, for that matter – is the fact that we live on the edge week to week. Our goal is to put this project together, using donated goods and services available in The Green Hub area – which includes Brantford, Six Nations, and Brant, Norfolk and Haldimand counties. So we never quite know what will transpire. We report what does, and then move on.
We have a top-notch technical team in place, and are now in the process of adding tradespeople and businesses that want to feature their services or products at the TROHGG house at 87 Alexander Drive in Brantford.
We are working with Flying Camel Advertising, Design + PR to bring this project to fruition, but, for now, want to highlight just a few of the images and initial marketing devices we have prepared.
Much more is coming, of course, and archives of the entire 29-week project thus far are available at TheGreenHub.ca, the parent organization hosting the TROHGG project.
This is a taste of where we’ve been … and where we’re headed, for that matter. We welcome all comments and suggestions. Find us on Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin. And feel free to connect directly via Twitter and email@example.com
