About the Author:

Dan Chiras, PhD, is a well-known green building expert who advises homeowners, architects, builders, and developers throughout the U.S. and Canada. He has published 24 books and hundreds of articles, and presented lectures and workshops to universities, the general public, and organizations including the U.S. Green Building Council and American Institute of Architects.

Review:

This book is highly recommended. It is an inexpensive volume which will appeal to homeowners and contractors. Its emphasis is on projects which can be undertaken to make homes more "green" and environmentally sustainable. A total of 65 projects are described and each well illustrated project description provides an estimate of cost. The projects cover green flooring, walls, counter tops & cabinets; heating and cooling efficiency; water conservation; minimizing electrical use; green roofing and siding; doors & windows; and green paving, landscaping and pools. Another part of the book discusses considerations in building a new green home and an appendix covers safety tips, a glossary of terms, and a resource guide to books, pamphlets and websites dealing with green buildings. The book is replete with great ideas to make homes more green and energy efficient. If only a few of these ideas are implemented, the cost of the book will be repaid many times over. --International Cost Engineering Council
