An essential introduction to environmentally friendly homes. There are many different aspects to consider when planning for and building an eco home. How can I best decrease my carbon footprint? How energy efficient will my home be? How sustainable should my building materials be? Should I use local or recycled materials? How can I use the landscape my home is being built on to the best advantage? These can be complicated questions to answer, especially for someone new to the concept. Eco Houses is a wonderful introduction, collecting from around the world some of the most interesting takes on the idea of the eco-friendly home. Combining modern architectural aesthetic with scientific ingenuity, the houses inside showcase some of the many ways homeowners have created homes that are not only conscious of their environmental footprint but manage to be stunning and forward-thinking in their design as well.
