Last Weekend of R-2000 Showcase of Homes Tour

This is the last weekend of the 22nd annual R-2000 Showcase of Homes and with 15 houses on display, this is an excellent opportunity to learn about R-2000 construction and the program’s benefits. If you are thinking about building a new home now or in the future, this is an excellent time to see why R-2000 is becoming an increasingly popular choice for Nova Scotians.

“R-2000 homes offer you exceptional value, energy efficiency and are built using advanced building practices,” says Paul Pettipas, chief executive officer of the Nova Scotia Home Builders’ Association and regional manager for the R-2000 and EnerGuide for New Houses programs in Nova Scotia. “When you choose an R-2000 home, it is not just about what you can see in the actual construction, it is also about what is behind the walls – how everything works together to provide your family with a home that will meet your lifestyle needs.”

 There are many benefits of R-2000 in terms of energy efficiency and environmental awareness, but in addition to that, homeowners also have the opportunity to receive specific rebates for building an R-2000 home if it meets certain criteria. For example, R-2000 homes that reach an EnerGuide Rating of 83 receive a $1000 rebate from the Province of Nova Scotia. In addition to this, Nova Scotia Power Inc. also has a variety of rebates of varying levels for R-2000 homes and those registered in the EnerGuide for New Houses program.

 For a list of the R-2000 homes on display this weekend Saturday and Sunday from 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm, visit the Nova Scotia Home Builders’ Association’s new website at and click on the R-2000 Showcase icon. You will find a list of the homes, directions and information about each participating house.

 Partners for this year’s R-2000 Showcase of Homes include Atlantic Home Warranty, Conserve Nova Scotia, R-2000, Bell Aliant, Nova Scotia Power Inc., Scotian Homes and The Chronicle Herald.

rent to own homes in Florida

I am seriously going to start using all of that! Thank you so much, I am not even kidding! There is nothing that I hate more than coming up with content all the time to barely keep our real estate blog up. It's just so time consuming - so thanks again!
