In 35 years of construction, I have never seen a book so well done about a topic so needing a book. The initial premise is so right on. The existing housing stock needs to be dealt with. It cannot be just new. The actual book is a work of art. The regional aspect with case studies is outstanding. The low fruit and more advanced steps is an excellent way to approach material of this sort. The photos and other sidebars just fall in line. The appendices are worth the price by themselves.

"Natural Remodeling" is a very welcomed addition to the literature on creating a green home. The book is a treasure trove of inspiration and information. The rich format of color photographs and illustrations makes the book especially appealing. The content is equally engaging with a blend of practical information on green building principles, essays on the more philosophical aspects of living green, and real life "case studies" documenting how people have greened their own homes. The writing is excellent and reflects the same helpful, thoughtful, friendly tone as the lay out. We will be recommending this book to all of our clients embarking on home remodels as it outlines the framework one needs for making environmentally sound and life enhancing changes to your home.

"Synopsis" by , This lavishly photographed guide--the loving labor of two internationally renowned architects--will become a cornerstone work for years to come. By focusing on remodeling rather than building from scratch, it redefines the best way to "go green" and addresses a timely topic in a way designed to appeal to a growing and eager audience. Absolutely indispensable for anyone hoping to renovate the natural way. To have a home that's more in touch with the earth, you don't have to start from the ground up! It's possible--and more environmentally friendly--to go green by renovating an existing home. With the help of Carol Venolia, an award-winning architect and bestselling author, and Kelly Lerner, an award-winning architect and world-famous innovator in the field of sustainable development, even the least mechanically inclined person can make a difference in his or her dwelling...and to the planet. The two have produced a remarkable book--packed with information and photos, and the first ever in full color to cover the subject. It's lush and exquisite to look at, filled with motivational case studies and informative graphics, and completely user-friendly. Every page leads would-be remodelers through the process of understanding their home, its surroundings, and themselves so they'll arrive at the perfect design solution. The suggestions range from "easy fixes"--perhaps adding plants for extra shade or trimming back those that block the sun--to more advanced projects, such as building a solar water heating system. Whether readers want to tackle an extensive remodeling project or try a few simple tricks to begin, the answers are here. Carol Venolia specializes in the field of eco-healthybuilding. Her first book, Healing Environments, has enjoyed international success, and her home designs have been featured in The Natural House Catalog, Earth to Spirit, The Healthy House, and Environ magazine. Carol currently writes the "Design for Life" column for Natural Home &
