COTEdc Summer Project Tour: Adelaide Alley House with BLDUS

Please join the AIA|DC COTE group for a tour of architecture firm BLDUS' founding partner Andrew Linn’s home in Adelaide Alley on Capitol Hill. Incorporating highly sustainable materials such as sheep’s wool insulation, bamboo framing, cork and bark cladding, milk paint, and various reclaimed materials, the alley house was designed and built around health, privacy and sustainability. Andrew will describe BLDUS's process for developing alley houses and share some insights about making this a home for his family. Be sure to RSVP as limited spots are available to maintain a small group size. Light food and refreshments will be served on what we hope will be a wonderful summer evening for the COTEdc group!

Learning objectives:

  • Design and privacy strategies for alley homes.
  • The benefits of sheep’s wool insulation and considerations for use within your future projects
  • With the BAMCORE rep joining the tour, understand the benefits of utilizing the BAMCORE framing system.
  • Sourcing, design, and construction considerations while with working with reclaimed materials.
