        Inspirational houses from around the world: how architects and home owners can achieve harmony between dwellings and nature

        Our houses can be seen as living, breathing entities, extensions of ourselves and our families. This carefully considered publication provides the design inspiration to build and live in domestic spaces in a balanced, natural, sustainable way.

        With the demands of all contemporary dwellings in mind-whether they're found in the city, suburbs, or country-Dominic Bradbury considers the design basics one must follow in order to coexist with the planet's resources.

        Five chapters present successful projects from different parts of the globe, all specially photographed by Richard Powers.

        • Design and Build: where and how to create a modern natural home
        • Let There Be Light: manipulating the elements to improve lifestyle and interaction with nature
        • The Material World: using natural products to establish healthier relationships with the environment
        • Indoor/Outdoor Living: ideas for encouraging symbiotic relationships with the landscape, whether in the city or the country
        • Sustainable Footprints: how to naturally reduce domestic energy use
        The book includes case studies and plans, a directory of architects, and a listing of featured houses, materials, and useful products.

        Dominic Bradbury contributes frequently to architecture and design publications and is the author of Mediterranean Modern. He lives in England. Richard Powers is an architectural photographer whose previous books include Tropical Minimal. He lives in France.

        Zero energy homes produce at least as much energy as they consume through a combination of energy efficiencies, passive design and renewable energy production. California has adopted zero net energy as the new residential standard for 2020; many other governments are considering similar policies. Developing zero energy homes is the first step toward making all buildings zero energy — a critical step in mitigating climate change as buildings account for 40% of material and energy use worldwide.

        Home Sweet Zero Energy Home is the first practical guidebook that clearly shows how zero energy homes can be good, livable, affordable homes. The author identifies all the pieces of the zero energy puzzle and how they fall into place, and explains how homeowners and buyers can also take smaller steps toward sharply reducing the energy use of existing buildings. Focusing on real costs and savings, this book takes an in-depth look at:

        • Site selection and passive design
        • Insulation, windows, doors and building materials
        • Heating and cooling
        • Appliances and electronics
        • Financial resources and incentives
        Whether you are a prospective buyer, owner or developer, Home Sweet Zero Energy Home is your complete guide to creating a more comfortable, efficient, environmentally friendly home without breaking your back or your bank account.

        As fossil fuel supplies dwindle, home heating will be one of the major challenges in temperate and cold climates. The reserves of natural gas used to heat the majority of North American buildings are rapidly being depleted. This latest Green Energy Guide helps readers who want to slash their energy bills and reduce their dependence on scarce resources to navigate the sometimes-confusing maze of clean, reliable and affordable options.

        Solar Home Heating Basics focuses on renewable energy strategies to heat new and existing homes and small businesses. These include:

        • Energy efficiency, weatherization and insulation
        • Solar hot air heating
        • Solar thermal systems
        • Passive solar heating
        • Backup heating systems.
        While most solar home heating resources are geared primarily towards new buildings, this practical and easy-to-understand guide also addresses ways of retrofitting existing buildings, making solar a reality for many people.

        Packed with all the essential information home and small-business owners need to find alternatives to conventional heating solutions, Solar Home Heating Basics is your key to a personal energy.

        On May 4, 2007, an EF5 tornado destroyed the town of Greensburg in south central Kansas. In the desperate days immediately after the catastrophe, town leaders-including the ex-cop mayor, the city manager, and an environmentalist from Colorado - launched a program to rebuild Greensburg green. Just like the name of the town. Before the tornado, Greensburg was slowly dying, a village about to be buried in the Great Plains. Now it is a mecca for eco-tourists. Author Robert Fraga taught math for 20 years in Egypt, Lebanon, and Saudi Arabia. Later he taught at Ripon College in Wisconsin and Baker University in Kansas. His two books on mathematics are entitled Calculus Problems for a New Century and War Stories from Applied Math. He and his wife Jean Grant, parents of two grown children, live in Lawrence, Kan., and the Dordogne region of France.

        The Integral Urban House: Self Reliant Living in the City is a comprehensive guide to achieving a completely sustainable urban lifestyle by creating a mini-ecosystem where residents grow their own fruits and vegetables, raise chickens, rabbits, and fish, recycle 90% of their waste, solar heat their hot water, and use a variety of other alternative technologies—all on a 1/8-acre city lot. Long considered the bible of urban homesteading, this book is the result of four years of living with and refining the systems of the Integral Urban House in Berkeley, California — a collaborative project which combined the collective skills of the members of the Farallones Institute to develop a center for creating and testing experimental, ecologically stable and resource-conserving living systems. With its vision of an intimate connection between the urban habitat and ecological principles The Integral Urban House will inspire and empower people to act within their own communities to create places where they can live more sustainably.

        Going green has never been so easy! The array of so-called "green" products on the market is dizzying and often misleading. Consumers need one reference book that clearly lays out what is the better choice-between brands, benefits and costs. Just Green It! compares brand-name products, making it easy for consumers to make environmentally friendly choices on everything from light bulbs to mattresses to baby food. It tells you which products are the best for the planet and also healthy for you, your kids, your home and your budget. For the average consumer, this means clarity of green definitions and product comparisons that are no longer a luxury, but a necessity. Authors Ron and Lisa Beres debunk the "greenwashing" that is so prevalent in modern marketing and teach readers how to know the difference between such confusing terms as "natural," "organic," "chemical free" and "nontoxic." Full of surprising facts and lots of ways to save money and help the environment, this is an essential book for the modern age. Did you know the Fresh Kills Landfill on Staten Island is large enough to be seen from outer space? That imported vodka has a higher carbon footprint? The Green Movement is concerned about the effects of our collective carbon footprint on the planet. A "green home" is one that does not endanger the planet's health. The Beres, on the other hand, are concerned with how our footprint is endangering the health and well-being of each individual. A guidebook for navigating the oversaturated green marketplace, Just Green It! is a must-have for today's tough economy. Just Green It! was chosen in May 2011 as an honorable mention by San Francisco's 2011 Green Book Festival.
