Green Building and Historic Preservation

August 17th, 2008 · No Comments

A lot has been said over the years about the aesthetic and economic value of historic preservation but lately the media has been talking about the real benefits of preservation and how the values and actions undertaken by so many people for years is in fact helping to “green” the planet.
When we undertake work around our homes we should think in the same terms that we do when shopping at the supermarket or planning a long trip in our cars. Before rushing out to the home center to buy some new replacement materials stop to think about where these materials have come from? How are they produced and what are the environmental impacts of their production? Once we stop and consider these things we can then weigh the costs against the alternative, fix what we have.

Below is a link to the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s online magazine. they have outlined a few easy steps to increase the efficiency of of our older homes with out breaking the bank or increasing our landfills.


Thanks for listening,

Ron Wanamaker
