The Green Home: A Decision Making Guide for Owners and Builders

Lynn Underwood

What does a "green" home look like? What are its characteristics, and how can you ensure that you meet the highest green standards within a given budget?

The answers to these questions and more are found in The Green Home, a book dedicated to teaching builders and homeowners alike about environmentally-friendly residential construction.

This highly practical resource explores the very latest construction techniques, materials, processes, and green practices that will reduce the environmental impact of the building itself.

Coverage ranges from air sealing measures and energy efficient practices to water conservation and the usage of natural materials, with a special focus on complying with zoning ordinances and building codes.

With thorough explanations of the many benefits of green building, this is the perfect "nuts and bolts" guide to environmentally-sound homes

Features:
  • written by an experienced code official who tactfully integrates the International Code Council (ICC) Codes and the National Green Building Standard (NAHB) with green home building
  • checklists for both air sealing measures and ensuring building code compliance provide practical worksheets that readers can apply to real-world scenarios
  • detailed color photographs illustrate key concepts and help readers to visualize various green building components
  • valuable appendices delineate several "how to" references, offering additional resources that will supplement the information provided in the book
