Summary

Most of us spend 90 percent of our time indoors, but our indoor environments could be causing us significant harm. Everything from flooring to paints to insulation contains chemicals known to contribute to health problems such as cardiovascular disease and cancer.

In this book, Jen and Rusty Stout, nationally recognized healthy home building innovators, teach you how to think like a builder so that you can construct a new home or upgrade an existing one to put wellness first. Making smart choices when it comes to building materials, moisture protection, and more can make all the difference in reducing your family’s exposure to toxins and living a healthier life.

Whether you are a home buyer, a homeowner working with a professional builder, a building contractor, or a DIY-er, Healthier Homes walks you through key considerations such as
  • Site selection
  • Designing a living space that meets your family’s unique needs
  • Material choices for the exterior and interior
  • Air and water quality
  • Sourcing home furnishings and finishes
  • Existing home upgrades
  • Mold remediation
