Great Book For High Performance Residential Builders or Home Buyers/Owners
This book is very informative, written in everyday language. It is full of excellent illustrations! This is a Green Building essential, it should be in the library of all High Performance Green Builders and prospective Buyers as well as home owners. After reading this book, I purchased several copies and gift them to Builders to help them on the path to building Great Homes!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Pretty pictures and precise information
David Johnston and Scott Gibson see construction friendly to people and to environments as necessarily GREEN FROM THE GROUND UP. So they encourage commitment indoors and out to air quality, and to efficient energy and resource use. That means healthy land- and people-scaping, by attention to moisture and temperature control inside and out. My preferred book length is 150 pages. The authors give readers twice that, but comfortably broken down into 16 chapters. The afterword, guide to resources, and index are helpful ends to a beautifully illustrated, conveniently organized, and nicely written work.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
