Images from GBA for blog

LucyF | Posted in General Questions on

I am trying to explain on my blog how we plan to insulate a house that will be built in the next year. I was wondering if it is possible to use images or free videos from Green Building Advisor on the blog. I wanted to ask before I did it.

I don’t know how to use AutoCAD, haven’t yet learned SketchUP so I might have to go the Lucas Durand way and draw these things by hand and then scan them in.

Thank you.

    The hand drawn approach isn't really so bad...

    It can be quite relaxing ;-)

    It may truly be more relaxing that trying to learn a new computer program.

    We are fine with you using images from GBA on a blog. As long as you are using them to distribute info to folks who want it, great. Please be judicious about the quantity.

    You can embed our videos using the embed code in the players (click the 'Get code' link).

    Please, please, please attribute the images and video to Green Building Advisor and add a link.

    I'm currently working on a new TV series about home building. It's called Grand Designs and has been airing in the UK since 1999. We are looking for people who want to document the whole process and I'm reaching out to you to see if you might be interested. Here are a few links and if it seems like something you would be interested in, please don't hesitate to email or call [email protected] or 818-748-2527
