Recommended Reading:

A Place in the Sun
Highly-recommended book that matches beautiful prose and photos with an inspiring tale of how the Real Goods Solar Living Center in California is exemplifies a new way of doing business that is not harmful to the earth.

Wind Power for Home and Business and Wind Energy Basics

Other Books: The Adobe Story: A Global Treasure by Paul McHenry, Jr., (Washington, D.C.: American Association for International Aging, 1996)
- Adobe has been used throughout the world for centuries. Perhaps we've taken this "global treasure" for granted, or worse, thought it too old-fashioned for the present century. This book is an excellent introduction to material of adobe itself and the cultures of people who used adobe to create shelter.

Green Building Professionals Directory

Looking for a green builder, expert in solar energy or alternative wastewater systems, or other professional who understands sustainability? Check this directory! And if you are a Green Professional, be sure you're listed!

 

Sustainable Building Calendar

Due to the number of events listed, we suggest you use the Event Listing Version. Add your event to the Sustainable Building Calendar! Post those workshops and barnraisings! Tell everyone about your conference!

You can also use a smaller calendar version or the Standard Calendar.

 


The Sustainable Building Sourcebook on Web

    We've converted the entire Sustainable Building Sourcebook, created by the City of Austin's Green Builder Program, into a Web document!

    As you can imagine, translating this 400 page document into HTML has been no small project. In order to cover the cost of converting, maintaining, and updating the Sourcebook, we are accepting sponsors for each chapter for a modest fee. If you are interested in sponsoring one or more chapters (and getting your information in front of an audience of sustainable building fanatics), please email Bill Christensen (billc@greenbuilder.com) for more information and take a glance at our rate sheet.

    Those who just want to get to the Table of Contents can cruise on ahead. Any chapter that doesn't presently have a sponsor is still fair game!

Green Building Conferences
We've listed some of the best up and coming Conferences on Green Building and similar topics, as well as links to several past conferences that have their Proceedings online.

 

  The Development Center for Appropriate Technology

 Read Green Building: A Primer for Consumers, Builders and Realtors from Howard Associates.

 Want to build a sturdy home with no nails? See the following sites on Timber Framing.

 

  Thatch Roofing This site from Safari Thatch and Bamboo shows some beautiful examples of a time-tested natural roofing method, and a variety of related products. Special on Thatch Umbrellas going on now!

Environmental Home Database from the Lower Colorado River Authority provides product info for commercial and residential renovation projects.

Energy Efficient Building Association

Passive Solar Industries Council

Cob Cottage Company

Hardcore stuff from Lawrence Berkeley Labs' Center for Building Science

 A List of Green Databases, begun by Sue Barnett of the City of Austin's Green Builder Program. Your additions to the list are welcome!

Environmental Building News
EBN is a monthly in depth review of sustainable building products, methods, and the like. These folks have a great philosophy--they take no advertising in order to insure that their reviews remain unbiased. Your subscription may cost a little more up front, but it is WELL worth it!

EBN now also offers 9 years of back issues on CD-ROM, including full search capability.

 

And in case that's not enough, EBN now has a product catalog. See their website for full details.

 

The Department of Energy's Center for Excellence for Sustainable Development
CESD provides consultation and information on sustainable development. It's good to see the federal government doing great work. A very rich site.

Ecological Architecture is a fine site with resources on a diverse range of information from Appropriate Technology and Bioregional Planning to Deep Ecology, Holistic Design and Building, Embodied Energy and Life Cycle Analysis, Transportation, and Permaculture.

You can also find information and/or links on the less physical topics of Environmental Illness, Sacred Geometry and Earth, Spirituality, and the Principles of Sustainability.

The Austin Sustainable Building Coalition
SBC is a grassroots organization of builders, homeowners, architects, and laypeople interested in sustainable building topics.

Center for Maximum Potential Building Systems is now on the Web with some background information, a list of publications and a bibliography. New! Photos of the Green Building Demonstration home are now online (see Selected Projects).

Eco-Home is a center for the study, development and demonstration of an ecologically sound lifestyle in an urban setting, expressed in right human relations and right action, in harmony with the earth and all its inhabitants. It is a community network for the furtherance of appropriate technology and appropriate lifestyles. And it is a community resource center of information and guidance in ecologocial urban living for individuals, businesses and government agencies.

Although I don't usually provide links to "commercial" sites, Andrew MacMillan's Holistic Homes Design holds the same basic philosophy as here on Sustainable Sources, and has a bunch of great backup information. Besides that, he's a great guy. Check out his site for info on Feng Shui and the Cerro Gordo Community.

The Green Building Newsletter, from the City of Austin's Green Building Program, is now online. You can subscribe to an email version of the Green Building Program's Newsletter by calling CJ Boggs at 512/505-3700. The electronic version of the Newsletter is $6.00 a year. To receive this Newsletter every other month by email, please contact C.J. Boggs at (512) 505-3700 or mail your check (payable to the City of Austin) to:
