Description

This is the Healthy House bible revised, updated and expanded, including contributions from North America’s leading building biologists.

Although there is nothing complicated about constructing healthier homes, building for health is still not standard practice, and in fact, there are many aspects of conventional home construction that are detrimental to human wellbeing.

From foundation to rooftop, to home care and repair, Prescriptions for A Healthy House takes the mystery out of healthy-house building, renovation and maintenance by walking the owner/architect/builder team through the entire construction process.

  • Chapters include:
  • Frame construction alternatives
  • Thermal and moisture control
  • Finishes
  • Floorings
  • Furnishings

The authors – an architect, restoration consultant and medical doctor – bring a singular combination of expertise and perspectives to this book. The result – now in its third completely update edition – is a unique guide to creating healthy indoor and outdoor spaces, including many new resources as well as specialized knowledge from several nationally recognized experts in the field of building biology.
