Summary
  • Your Natural Home shows you how to create an environment-friendly house that nurtures human health and has a natural beauty, with all the warmth of homespun architectural traditions. Part One of the book offers a handsomely illustrated, easy-to-understand primer that points out where our homes' major environmental and health problems lie
  • Part Two explains which conventional products pose the greatest health risks, how to set priorities in building or remodeling, and how to trim costs and make compromises, whether you're on a bare-bones, moderate, or spare-no-expense budget
  • The heart of the book presents a compendium of two thousand tested building, remodeling, and decorating products - the most extensive list ever published - that can be used as substitutes for their more hazardous counterparts
  • From recycled lumber and urea-formaldehyde-free plywood to paints made of plant oils in exquisite earth colors, from area rugs made of untreated wools to all-natural bedding, the hundreds of stylish and effective products recommended in the compendium lay the groundwork for a new interior and exterior design that celebrates natural materials and superb craftsmanship
  • And because many of these products aren't available at Home Depot or the local hardware store, each listing is followed by the names and addresses of suppliers
