Affordable Eco-Friendly Home Improvements

In keeping with my philosophy that green building doesn't always have to cost more, I'll refer you to an article by Matt Cunningham at How Stuff Works that covers 10 things to look at when you're in the home repair or remodeling mind set. Start with an energy audit, and then you can make major reductions in your home's energy consumption, improve your indoor air quality, and save money on your utility bills by taking smaller steps like these. Projects like solar panels and windmills have a longer payback period and should be a last step; try caulking, shading, and insulating first.
