The green building movement has produced hundreds of “how-to” books and websites filled with tips about what homeowners should do to “go green.” While informative when it comes to making actual design and purchasing decisions, they do not make it any easier for a homeowner to prioritize against a budget.

Revealing the true costs and benefits readers will gain invaluable insight to use in their journey toward a greener way of living — and why it matters. More than a guidebook it is an honest transparent look at how personal choices in building or renovating a home can make a difference for a family’s health wealth and soul.
