Building Renewable’s Mission

Our mission is to share our knowledge of sustainable building materials and techniques to allow more people to build homes that work in harmony with the planet.

We have articles on traditional building techniques that have very low carbon footprints, clever ways to obtain recycled materials that will save you money as well as reduce the impact on the environment, and ideas for using materials that you might not have considered.
