“The Green Home: A Decision Making Guide for Owners and Builders” ensures a home meets the highest green standards within a given construction budget.

Career development and education provider Delmar announced the release of “The Green Home: A Decision Making Guide for Owners and Builders”. It explains how builders, contractors and homeowners can ensure a home meets the highest green standards within a given construction budget.

Written by Lynn Underwood, an experienced building code official, the book explores the latest construction techniques, materials, processes and green practices that will reduce the environmental impact of the building itself. The guide covers a range of topics, such as sustainable, resource-efficient design and energy-efficient practices (such as water conservation, renewable energy production and the usage of natural materials), all while consistently focusing on zoning ordinance and building code compliance.

Detailed color photographs illustrate key concepts and help readers visualize various green building components.
