There will also be a donation station where the NE Seattle Tool Library will accept donations of tools. They should be in working condition. We don't accept gas-powered tools. Thanks.

I'm so sorry but the Zero Energy House from Shoreline Community College was discovered to have a water leak and got moldy. Booths by Sustainable Works and the Home retrofit tour will give us similar information.
