Malena and Graham's Shrine to '59

Jul 17, 2008

Malena and Graham have a different approach to green: they haven't done an intensive renovation, or put down bamboo floors, or built from scratch. They invested time in finding the perfect house for them. All it needed was a bit of cleaning, polishing, and paint. And now it's green and gorgeous.

Also this week, Re-nest readers chipped in with opinions on their favorite reusable bags. Stephanie took us through a 7,000 square foot (?!!) green house. We met Jay Hasbrouck, who blogs over at Verde Vista, and we went through step-by-step how to get a good finish using zero- or low-VOC paint. Also, remember Ian and Raedia's house? We saw it while it was still under construction, and now it's (almost) all done.



We profiled Jay Hasbrouck for our Green People series. His blog, Verde Vista, always makes us rethink our assumptions about green and sustainability.

We've put together a step-by-step guide to getting good looking results with zero-VOC paint. It needs a bit more care in application than paint that pollutes.

Chico? Envirosax? CYMA? Crochet-your-own? What's the best reusable bag? It's a question we can't seem to get enough at Re-nest.

We've been on a green tour of Ian and Raedia's house in Vermont while it was still under construction. And now, they're (almost) done.
