Green Day 1: Resource-Efficient Home: Retrofits, Remodels, Renovations, and New Home Construction

As a trusted source of information, you’ll be able to help homeowners improve the resource efficiency of their homes from low-cost fixes and do-it-yourself projects to retrofitting and replacing systems to big-budget remodeling projects. You’ll also look at the process of constructing a new, resource-efficient home and the value you can bring to the design and build team.
