150 Best Eco House Ideas by Marta Serrats is a beautifully crafted book with lots of photographs. As a green designer, I always read books in my field and am delighted to report that this one did not disappoint. I have found many people to be daunted at the prospect of building green....how to do so, the costs, etc. This book makes doing so no longer a daunting task. Photographs feature homes built by internationally recognized architects and designers...there are some real beauties in this book. The book covers the heating and cooling systems in a home, including geothermal, wind, solar and passive solar. It also covers green materials to use throughout your home, from glass, to building materials and eco-friendly insulation. How to select sustainable materials, what flooring, wall coverings and much more. The book also explains how materials that aren't green affect the environment and make for poor indoor air quality. 150 Best Eco House ideas makes going green a no-brainer....healthy for you and the environment. As a green designer, I also recommend HARMONIOUS ENVIRONMENT to help make green choices in furniture, assessories and cleaning products. Highly recommend!
