Natural Remodeling for the Not-so-green House
Bringing your Home Into Harmony With NatureBook - 2006
This lavishly photographed guide--the loving labor of two internationally renowned architects--will become a cornerstone work for years to come. By focusing on remodeling rather than building from scratch, it redefines the best way to "go green" and addresses a timely topic in a way designed to appeal to a growing and eager audience. Absolutely indispensable for anyone hoping to renovate the natural way. The two have produced a remarkable book--packed with information and photos, and the first ever in full color to cover the subject. It s lush and exquisite to look at, filled with motivational case studies and informative graphics, and completely user-friendly. Every page leads would-be remodelers through the process of understanding their home, its surroundings, and themselves so they ll arrive at the perfect design solution. The suggestions range from "easy fixes"--perhaps adding plants for extra shade or trimming back those that block the sun--to more advanced projects, such as building a solar water heating system.
