What People are Saying about the Primer...

"I am very impressed with the book, and apparently quite a few others [at the Built Green Conference] feel the same way, judging from the way they flew out of there!"

~ Aaron Adelstein
Built Green Director
King-Snohomish County Master Homebuilders Association

"I recently attended your lecture at Powell's in Portland, Oregon and I found your book and advice to be really insightful and easy to digest.  I truly appreciate that your solutions and suggestions are attainable for the average homeowner. Your book was beautifully put together."

~ Catherine Vader
