Pretty Good House 

Hardcover – July 26 2022

by Michael Maines 


Pretty Good House provides a framework and set of guidelines for building or renovating a high-performance home that focus on its inhabitants and the environment―but keeps in mind that few people have pockets deep enough to achieve a “perfect” solution. The essential idea is for homeowners to work within their financial and practical constraints both to meet their own needs and do as much for the planet as possible.

 A Pretty Good Houseis:

 * A house that's as small as possible

 *  Simple and durable, but also well designed

 * Insulated and air-sealed 

 * Above all, it is affordable, healthy, responsible, and resilient.
