If you have always dreamed of having a home that produces energy instead of consuming it, with eco-friendly features at every turn, you will be happy to know that many companies are creating new products to help you do so every day. But if the multitude of choices has left you feeling a bit overwhelmed, Green Remodeling: Changing the World One Room at a Time by David R. Johnston and Kim Master is here to help.
It is not a how-to manual, but it will serve as an in-depth guide on building construction. The book will clue you in on the items and areas of your home that suck up energy, like old refrigerators and products like vinyl siding whose manufacturing releases dioxins. It also provides a bunch of healthy alternatives. One chapter also breaks down remodeling from room to room, including checklists for every nook and cranny.
