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 and stylish choices in furniture, accessories and cleaning products.
now the negative
- might as well just do a Google image search because its just pretty much just pictures.
- Doesn't really help those who are looking to build.
Its not a bad book but there is no more useful information in it then any green living website.

Nice images, small book, not much info on the homes. If there is a diagram or layout it's so small it's hardly legible.Published 16 months ago by that guy
Lots of pictures. However there isn't much content. The book seems to be a glossary of houses that have at least one type of green building feature. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Me
