– is an idea whose time has come! Authors David Johnston and Scott Gibson (Green

houses from start to finish. They make the case for a ZEH; cite climate and
geographic challenges; describe exactly how to go about building an
energy-efficient home; and feature ten houses that were built for zero energy
living. With unequaled knowledge and a passion for the subject, the authors walk
readers through the process of building and living in a truly green home.
