What to Know Before You Build: Expert Tips for Homeowners Planning Renovation or New Construction Projects

The Sustainable Energy Outreach Network (SEON) will host a panel presentation for the public on “What to Know Before you Build: Expert Tips for Homeowners Planning Renovation or New Construction Projects” on Monday, January 23rd from 6:00 - 7:30 PM at the Marlboro Graduate Center in Brattleboro.
