Book Description:

Interest in sustainable, green building practices is greater than ever. Whether concerned about allergies, energy costs, old growth forests, or durability and long term value, homeowners and builders are looking for ways to ensure that their homes are healthy, safe, beautiful, and efficient.

In these pages are descriptions and manufacturer contact information for more than 1,400 environmentally preferable products and materials. All phases of residential construction, from sitework to flooring to renewable energy, are covered. Products are grouped by function, and each chapter begins with a discussion of key environmental considerations and what to look for in a green product. Over 40 percent revised, this updated edition includes over 120 new products. Categories of products include:

  • Sitework and landscaping
  • Outdoor structures
  • Decking
  • Foundations, footers, and slabs
  • Structural systems and components
  • Sheathing
  • Exterior finish and trim
  • Roofing
  • Doors and windows
  • Insulation
  • Flooring and floor coverings

  • Caulks and adhesives
  • Paints and coatings
  • Mechanical systems/HVAC
  • Plumbing, electrical, and lighting
  • Appliances
  • Furniture and furnishings
  • Renewable energy

An index of products and manufacturers makes for easy navigation. There is no more comprehensive resource for both the engaged homeowner and those who design and build homes.

Editor Alex Wilson is president of BuildingGreen, an authoritative source for information on environmentally responsible design and construction, which also publishes Environmental Building News.

Co editor Mark Piepkorn has extensive experience with natural and traditional building methods.
