A free, comprehensive encyclopedia of sustainable building materials to help you choose the best green housing ideas.
You may find yourself overwhelmed with the sheer number of sustainable building materials and systems available today. Each one comes with its own set of pros and cons, facts and fictions. That’s where Endeavour’s Sustainable Building Encyclopedia comes in!
The encylopedia will help you assess the best green housing ideas without the bias that comes from product sales sites or cheerleaders. This resource is based on Chris Magwood’s book Making Better Buildings, which has been called “quite possibly the most valuable book ever published on green building.”
WHAT YOU'LL FIND:
- Appropriate applications for the material/system
- How the system works
- Tips for successful installations
- Pros and cons according to ten key criteria
- A rating chart to help compare between options
