On March 3, 2012, ACTION-Housing, Inc. unveiled the Pittsburgh Green House, located at 308 North Sheridan Avenue in East Liberty, as part of its newest sustainability initiative. The 110-year old renovated dwelling is now a weatherization training and educational facility where contractors and the general public can learn how to make their homes healthier and more energy efficient. Visitors are encouraged to tour the home and participate in interactive educational displays as well as browse the green resource library for information on contractors, retrofit financing and do-it-yourself projects.
