BetterBuiltNW Trainee & Project Spotlight: Grace Weger of Bend-Redmond Habitat for Humanity


Hear from design and construction professionals who participate in BetterBuiltNW trainings as they share their lessons learned and the new best practices they have incorporated into recently completed above-code projects. This month, we feature Grace Weger of Bend-Redmond Habitat for Humanity, who recently completed the Sustainable Homes Professional (SHP) training and went on to build their Northwest Cottages project, an 11-home Earth Advantage Zero Energy affordable housing development in Bend, Oregon.

Grace, who has earned her SHP designation, presented at the SHP Project Showcase that took place in January and explained how her training experience helped her and the team advance their building process and practices:
