About this book

A Place in the Sun showcases two dozen inspiring homes from across the country that are well-appointed, stunning, and filled inside and out with green materials, design, and decor. These environmentally responsible, perfectly designed solar-powered homes, here sumptuously photographed, will inspire readers to see their homes as places that can blend sustainability and beauty.

A Place in the Sun vividly demonstrates that living green doesn't have to be about sacrificing comfort and living with less. Incisive, clearly written text offers profiles of the featured houses through interviews with the homeowners and includes extensive practical information in sidebars covering everything from green decorating and earth-friendly remodeling to healthy home tips and shopping resources.

This is not a how to book, but it will feature extensive details about how and why each homeowner achieved the dream of green living. The reader will benefit from practical advice derived from the experience of homeowners, builders, and architects, who have all achieved the dream of creating not only a solar home but a home that is green inside and out.
