Redux by Jennifer Roberts
Book Description"Redux: Designs that Reveal, Recycle, and Redefine" offers a host of solutions for creating a green home with recycled, reused, and environmentally healthy materials, whether remodeling, redecorating, or building from the ground up. This book combines extensive salvage use with the larger goal of efficiency and environmentalism - and the results are simply stunning. With a focus on healthfulness, durability, and comfort, Roberts has assembled a collection of living spaces so innovative that it will turn the idea of "salvage" on its head. They span the spectrum of reuse, and exemplify the countless steps that homeowners can take to put a stamp of beauty and individuality on their home, while providing the added benefits of being earth-friendlier, healthier, more self reliant, and more efficient. Included are chapters that focus on Renovation (energy efficiency, salvaging, where to find good old stuff), Adaptation (preservation, old stuff to avoid, restoration) and New Construction (ecologically intelligent design, straw bale, and green architects). Whether it's salvaging lumber from a demolition site, or choosing double-paned windows and chemically safe paints, this book will provide hundreds of ways to make old things new again. The tips and information here will be invaluable, no matter whether you're a "Do-It-Yourselfer" or just a "Decide It-Yourselfer!"
