Kennedy Green House

Designing an Eco-Healthy Home from the Foundation to the Furniture

Robin Wilson

Kennedy Green House documents the transformation of the home by a Green Dream Team, from the drawing of architectural plans to the selection of eco-friendly building materials and power sources to the retooling of the home with health-promoting, energy efficient appliances and furnishings. Along the way, author Robin Wilson provides information and tips on how these changes can be implemented by any homeowner, whether its a broad renovation or simple, affordable replacements of common household items. Wilson provides:

• A wide variety of four-color photographs documenting the entire process
• Side bar advice that shows readers the ultimate, mid-range, and low-cost/easy  solution to every upgrade
• A focus on maximizing energy, water efficiency, and indoor air quality

The LEED-certified (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), renovated Kennedy house will also showcase the latest in green technologies, sustainable building practices, and healthy home initiatives. Kennedy Green House aims to inspire others to take action to improve the quality of their environment and health, and to serve as an educational tool for homeowners, builders, and interior designers.
