    One thought on “A Place in the Sun: Green Living and the Solar Home”

    1. The only thing mising from this book is blueprints for each house. The designs run the gamut from simple and affordable to large and expensive. But the ideas are solid for space use, energy efficiency and livable design.

    2. Nice places, especially the ones at Vieques. I wish I had money to build a solar mansion like those depicted in this book.
