This edition is greatly expanded from the previous editions with new sections on furnishing and maintaining a healthy home and many other topics never before covered. Paula Baker-Laporte, an architect, and John Banta, an Industrial Hygienist and mold expert, have put together a veritable treasure trove of useful and often difficult-to-find information. The recommendations are based on research and decades of experience “in the trenches.” The book is pertinent to anyone interested in building or remodeling a home or workplace that is not only beautiful, but also durable and health-enhancing.Although there is nothing complicated about constructing healthier homes, building for health is still not standard practice, and in fact there are many aspects of conventional home construction that are detrimental to human wellbeing.From foundation to rooftop, to home care and repair, Prescriptions for a Healthy House takes the mystery out of healthy-house building, renovation and maintenance, by walking the owner/architect/builder team through the entire construction process. Chapters include:• Frame construction alternatives• Thermal and moisture control• Finishes• Flooring• Furnishings• Electromagnetic RadiationThis unique guide will appeal to architects, designers, contractors, medical professionals and homeowners.
