MB Jessee, the professional painters, organized a nice event for local "green" professionals last Friday. They are on top of the low-VOC ("volatile organic compounds") movement, and Maya, their marketing director, is reaching out to network with other eco-friendly professionals. At the event, I met Amy Hutton of Winans Construction. She's a CGBP (certified green building professional--remember builditgreen.org . . . .) and is organizing a free seminar at the Rockridge Library, 6-8 pm on Tuesday, September 30th.
She'll cover what to do and what to avoid to make your remodeling project a streamlined, lower stress effort. She's happy to answer questions about your thoughts and plans.
And don't forget that I'm happy to take a look at your blueprints, refer you to various remodeling professionals, or talk about cost vs. value tradeoffs. Just call or click anytime.
