No matter how much you read on the internet, there's still something satisfying about sitting down with a good book, turning the pages and learning about what's inside — especially when it comes to green building. Although it's not such a new concept anymore, there's still many people who are sharing their first hand knowledge of these processes with us and it would be a shame to miss out!
