25 sustainable houses, 18 different countries, five continents, in both rural regions and urban areas. That is testament to the global phenomenon that is sustainable building – too bad most new homes aren’t being built that way. The good news is that all the homes in Sustainable Living are sustainable and that clueful architects and builders are building them, not just talking about sustainability. Better yet, the homes in this book are attractive and cost less to operate, which may end up being what really tips sustainability into the mainstream. “Sustainable Living features detailed documentation for 25 sustainable residential structures from 5 continents, with considerable variety in size, materials, and locations among the individual projects. An appendix of useful addresses and contact information for the responsible architect and engineer is also included.”. Hardcover, 160 pages, 280 color and 150 B&W images, $50.37 at Amazon.
