Green Building Bible, fourth edition (both books)  
These two books are the perfect starting place to help you get to grips with one of the most vitally important aspects of our society - our homes and living environment.

Solid wall insulation and conservation
Solid wall insulation and conservation  
There are plenty of sound reasons for insulating an older home - for improved comfort, reduced energy bills, even as a buffer in the unthinkable event of fuel stoppages. So what is holding homeowners back from embracing solid wall insulation? Aside from the cost and the disruption, one common objection is the assumption the work could be detrimental to the looks of a property. In this article Gordon Glass looks at the successful insulation approaches used for three London SuperHomes. All three are in a conservation area, so preserving period looks was a key requirement of the brief. These examples show that major thermal improvements can be made with little or no loss of period character. Each has been an inspiration to others and different approaches were taken in each case.

A five page article. First published in December 2013

By making people happier, safer and healthier, benefits which are often overlooked, the built environment encourages society to be more productive.”
