Irish Magazines article on Green Building
The green products and materials area is not one I am too familiar with at the moment. I have never invested enough time or energy I suppose in reading about the products, or the projects completed with the techniques of a green builder. Lately, I decided to gain a basic introduction from a source, I know has worked down through the years to combine together concepts of energy conservation and green, natural materials in construction. Sometimes, the too concepts are separated from one another. It feels a bit ‘either or’. I can thoroughly recommend the article about Patrick Daly’s house in Ireland and would enjoy hearing some feedback on it.
Do any of you know of any other good introductory articles I can read on the subject of natural materials – especially, if the architect or consultant has thought about the inter-relationship of natural materials and energy efficiency.
