My husband’s brother and sister-in-law know I am into green building, so a thoughtful gift came my way last Christmas: Building Green by Clarke Snell & Tim Callahan. I engulfed the 600+ page resource within a couple of weeks. It was a wonderful read, focusing on step-by-step examples of earth plaster, straw bale, cordwood, cob, and living roofs.
Here are a few other great green building picks for your Holiday Gift giving:
Green Building Products by Alex Wilson and Mark Piepkorn – resource for green building materials in your home. It has an index of products and suppliers that will help you achieve a healthier home, inside and out.
