The Sustainable Home: Build an Eco-friendly and Energy Efficient Home for Your Health, Wealth, and Soul
The green building movement has produced hundreds of how-to books and websites that are filled with tips about green building and what homeowners should do to go green. While helpful and informative, when it comes to making actual purchasing and installation decisions, these books do not make it any easier for a homeowner to prioritize against a budget. Here, Schifman shares her knowledge and experience for others to use in their journey toward a greener way of living. Whether the reader is building a new home or doing a minor remodel, a homeowner needs a framework by which to guide their decisions. These decisions are based on values, and the author posits that there are really only three reasons to go green: For Our Health: By building more sustainably, we reduce our exposure to harmful chemicals and toxins. For Our Wealth: By building a more durable home and being more efficient with resources like water and electricity, we reduce our monthly utility bills and ongoing maintenance expenses. For Our Soul: Collectively doing the right thing for our planet does make a difference--and that is soul-nourishing. Learn the logistics of choosing windows, insulation, appliances, and lighting. Find out about FSC certified wood and about using reclaimed materials. Here is everything you need to make your home sustainable.

Haynes Manual on Welding: Step-By-Step Illustrated Procedures and Practical Projects
Welding is an art that goes back to the days of the village blacksmith, but until recently the tools and materials needed were too expensive for DIY use. Nowadays, however, equipment that was once considered solely the province of the high-production professional workshop is within reach of the individual owner. It's been good news for the automotive hobbyist, whether restoring an old car or building a sports car, as well as for the small farmer needing to maintain and repair equipment. Welders are also being purchased by metal sculptors and other artists and craftsmen, as well as being used for everyday household jobs such as repairing a bicycle or garden tool, building a firewood storage rack or a barbecue, or even fabricating a small utility trailer. This book is intended as an introduction to the welding process, illustrating most of the common equipment and work techniques for both home and professional welding. It covers gas, arc, MIG, TIG and plasma welding and cutting techniques, with advice on choosing the most suitable equipment within a budget. A practical project chapter shows how to use welding equipment to build a trailer. Whether you plan to restore or build a car, construct your own wrought-iron fence or sculpt a metal masterpiece, you'll find this book of interest.

Basements Complete
Basements often get a bad rap. They can be dark, dank, and depressing, and are some of the most challenging spaces in a home to remodel. But the rewards of tackling a basement remodel are potentially enormous--transforming an otherwise ignored space into a bright, open, and usable asset, perfect for a spare bedroom for guests, a game room for the kids, or a den for the adults. In Basements Complete, author Steve Cory covers the most popular remodeling approaches and projects for basements, including information on preventing mold and mildew, moving pipes up or over to make more headroom, bringing more light into a dark space, mitigating radon, and sealing floors and walls. Additionally, some of the projects--such as flooring, plumbing, and wiring--apply to other rooms in the house, but are treated here with an eye towards basement needs. Though the book is largely how-to, it also explores some design and planning issues, making it the truly complete reference title for all things basements. With more than 700 photos, 35 illustrations, and clear step-by-step instructions, Basements Complete is the only book that homeowners, remodelers, and builders will need to transform a damp basement into a warm addition.
