The New Granite is...Siding! Really?

My friends in energy efficiency have been patiently waiting for granite to fall out of favor as the sexiest way to improve your home, and add value when you sell.So the good news is that the 2013 Realtor & Remodeling Magazine Cost vs. Value Report shows that the ol' kitchen remodel (minor) is 6th overall, major…See More

Mapping the Market Triggers for an Efficiency Tipping Point

Do Words Matter for High Performance Homes?

When people consider high performance homes the term “label” gets used most broadly – in both a positive or negative context.  In general, when people talk about distinguishing homes related to energy efficiency, or other greenness it is referred to a label.Also, the available research on sales of high performance homes tends to use the presence of what is called a label as the means to distinguish one population of homes from another.But in reality a label, or labeling is one of four core…See More

Yes, I know Melisa Camp. She was LEED Advocate and I was building Committee Chair for RGBC.  She's now moved up to USGBC, Central Branch, and I'm the Realtor Committee Chair for RGBC.  We worked together for 2 years on several initiatives in Phoenix.  it's funny how this is such a small circle of people, and across the US!

Certainly, Laura.  I met her just once, when I took a 1-day seminar she gave when a local builder brought her to our area in NW Arkansas.  I've been trying to spread her gospel ever since.  So, by all means, I will funnel comments and experiences from the field your way, so you can pass them on to Sandy.  Thanks for friending me!
