The Central Oregon Builders Association says this weekend's “Tour of Homes” puts millions of dollars back into our local economy.

 

COBA Executive Vice President Tim Knopp says this year about 35 homes make up the tour.  There is a lot of variety in the tour; from a $79,000 house in Redmond to luxury homes in Tetherow and Pronghorn.  And then there's a "green" home in Sisters.  "We've got a great home out in Sisters.  It’s got a product called "energy block."  It was on the tour last year as a demonstration, basically this is just an energy efficient home.  Suntera Energy Block, and a great way to build and Jim Chauncey from Suntera has a great story to tell about this home, so I would encourage you to go to Sisters and see it."  The free tour attracts an estimated 10,000 to 20,000 people, it's taking place this weekend and next weekend.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
