Lily Oberman, writing on the National Association of Realtors’ website, says that The New New Home would be useful to anyone planning to build the home of their dreams. Highlighting the book’s chapters on environmental considerations, she writes that the book could prove useful to real estate agents trying to explain sustainability to their clients.
From the article:
Boyce Thompson’s The New New Home aims to “demystify” the factors in play when it comes to building a new home in the current market, with special attention paid to environmental and economic factors that many buyers might want to consider when purchasing or building a new home.
In general, The New New Home proves a useful guidebook for people looking to build the home of their dreams. Thompson offers tips on making homes more energy efficient with careful planning: “Basic decisions—like whether you want a one- or two-story house, whether the garage will be attached, the height of ceilings, or whether you use dark or light colors on exterior or interior surfaces—profoundly impact energy consumption,” he writes.
