The GREENGUARD certification program, administered by UL Environment, assures

homeowners, builders, and specifiers that certified products designed for use in

indoor spaces meet strict chemical emissions limits, contributing to the creation of

healthier interiors. GREENGUARD certification gives credibility to manufacturers’

sustainability claims, backed by scientific data attained by an unbiased, third-party

organization. Product categories certified in the program include building materials,

flooring, finishes, paints and sealants, interior furnishings, cabinetry, cleaning prod-

ucts, and electronic equipment. For additional information about this certification

program, visit the UL website (ul.com/gg), where you’ll also find a searchable list of

sustainable products.

Breathtaking views of the valley below make the deck

a magical spot to relax, daydream, or host an intimate

dinner or cocktail party. It’s also a great place to watch

the sun set over the Sonoma Valley.

“ This book IS A MUST for anyone looking to live large on a small
footprint. It is full of creative ideas that can make everyone’s dream house come
alive without cramping your lifestyle or pocketbook. The Solar Decathlon houses
are especially useful in illustrating how to produce your own energy economically.”
