No, I am not talking about office supplies. I am talking about houses and the “building envelope” that contains that house. If you are like me you hear a lot about green building. I have to admit that I have not kept up with the newest techniques. I tend to deal more in resale housing here in the Willamette Valley than new construction but it behooves all of us to keep up with building issues that help conserve resources. This is not only smart thinking for your wallet but smart thinking for our stewardship of the planet that we live on. Just look at the proliferation of Hybrid concept automobiles. I am actually considering the purchase of one and taking on the premium of cost associated with that because of wanting to reduce my carbon footprint but also my dollars spent at the pump. Much the same thinking applies to the homes that we live in.
I was just introduced to a series of very short videos on Eco Building Pulse that showcases in easy to understand language some of these new techniques. I hope you find them as interesting as I did.
