Sustainable Housing Resources

In case you want to find out more about sustainable housing but don’t know where to start here are some excellent resources to get you going:

Blogs

http://buildnaturally.blogspot.com

This is a well put together blog run by Sigi Koko featuring in depth natural building how-to’s and technical advice. A great resource for those who want to learn about building with cob and other natural materials. Don’t forget to check out the excellent glossary there.

Forums

http://www.permies.com/

If you go to the ‘building’ section of these forums you’ll find that they are full of great information, opinions and advice about natural, sustainable building methods. Tons of resources for specific building methods are available here for those willing to do a bit of digging.

Reddit

http://www.reddit.com/r/Permaculture/

http://www.reddit.com/r/sustainability/

http://www.reddit.com/r/Sustainable_Homes/

These can be great resources as well. Sustainable_Homes seems to be pretty slow but I am sure there are more subreddits providing valuable information on the subject.

Websites

http://www.theyellowhouse.org.uk/eco-prin/princip.html

It is a pretty dense read but this particular page provides a very good understanding of the fundamentals of sustainable eco-design.

http://andrewwright.allspokanehomesforsale.com

While not geared toward sustainable housing per se, my website is equipped with a great search feature for homes in the Spokane Area. With a bit of research, it could be used to find the ideal location for a potential home-site.

-There will be more to come, thanks for reading!
