This Green House: Home Improvements for the Eco-Smart, the Thrifty, and the Do-It-Yourselfer : Just the thought of "going green" can make you feel blue. Trying to live sustainably sounds like a whole lot of work and a whole lot of deprivation. Well, Josh Piven aims to both shrink your carbon footprint and soothe your eco-anxiety. In a guidebook that's as funny as it is practical, Piven shows you how to green every room of the house - and have a good time doing it. Projects range from the playful (raising trout in your swimming pool) all the way to big-time, serious home alterations (installing a root cellar) that will have your neighbors green with envy. Don't fret if you're not a natural wrench-turner: Most of Piven's suggestions are inexpensive, totally approachable, and accompanied by clear illustrations. This Green House is likely to be the most entertaining homeowner's manual you've ever used.
