'GREEN' HOUSE OPENING

Rainbow Rehab will unveil its LEED certified remodeled 'green' home this Wednesday, October 7 from 10:00 - 11:00 AM. The home, located at 303 Putnam Drive, will be a rental property for a low income family. Rehabbed in collaboration with Sustainable Tallahassee, energy efficient
materials and systems were installed and materials removed from the home will be recycled to the extent possible.

Rainbow Rehab, Inc. purchased the home on Putnam Drive late in 2008 and began renovation. Built in 1936, it has three bedrooms, one bath, with 800 square feet. Renovations included a new roof, new wiring, plumbing and HVAC system, new floor coverings, new sheet rock, new bath and updated kitchen.


Rainbow Rehab is a long time non-profit in Tallahassee serving disadvantaged families by providing renovated homes and repairs.
