"I've been working as the City of Portland's green building specialist for the past six years. In my work I talk to many homeowners, designers and contractors about green home remodeling. Almost all would like a resource that explains sustainable or green building clearly and provides useful guidance for making choices. From now on, this will be one of the books I recommend to them. The authors have succeeded in making a complex topic interesting and enjoyable to learn about. Whatever your goals, lifestyle or budget, you will find helpful ideas to achieve your green remodel."
Mike O’Brien, Green Building Specialist
Portland Office of Sustainable Development
"A beautiful book and valuable on so many levels. It will be a great resource for me as a green building professional, and equally great for the homeowner who's just beginning to think about remodeling green."

"I have waited a long time for a book like this. It is packed with really good examples, and I love those numerous drawings and diagrams. The contributions by so many people give the book such diversity and depth. Architects should show this book to their clients in advance of any renovation project."
