EcoLumina is the Showcase House for the 2008 Southern Building Show, which is coming up June 11-13 at the Cobb Galleria Exhibition Center. EcoLumina, which is under construction in Sandy Springs with the Hoots Group as the builder, is the fourth annual Showcase Home and will be the first Showcase Home to be LEED certified, a certification program of the U.S. Green Building Council.

Building professionals will tour the house during the Southern Building Show, and following the show, the owners of EcoLumina will continue to open the house to trade, consumer and legislative groups in order to further their dedication to green building education.
