2021 Portland Modern Home Tour is virtual: See sustainable, energy- and space-saving ideas

Not all home tours have returned to in-person viewing, but seeing smartly designed, energy-efficient houses virtually still allows you to take note of everything that captures your attention. The five dwellings spotlighted in 3D filming for the Portland Modern Home Tour on Saturday, July 24, are exemplars of sustainable building and decor trends.

Two dwellings were created to exacting “passive house” standards, which means they can use 80 to 90 percent less energy for heating and cooling, and an 800-square-foot home and 600-square-foot studio show off space-saving techniques.

A Lake Oswego custom house has soundproof hobby rooms reached by a secret door and a slide into the gym and indoor futsal court.

A major turning level in the improvement of the Amstel river mouth is the All Saint’s Flood of 1170.
