Home improvement expert Bill McCauley has developed a series of do-it-yourself videos that show homeowners how to update their homes and improve energy efficiency by using plastic home building products.
How to Build Sustainable Buildings
See the implications of a building's energy usage OVER TIME. Sustainability, or using less to sustain our natural resources is impacted by how a building heats and cools. If the building is leaky then we are using extra unnecessary energy (= pollution) to heat and cool it. This video shows ways to increase sustainability by making the "building envelope" tight.
Buildings that Meet the Test of Time
Your structure (home or office) uses energy and produces pollution to heat and cool the inside. That energy over the life of the building is part of its energy footprint. When a building meets the test of time it conserves energy throughout its lifetime, or, over its entire life cycle.

A Healthy Home
Products you use building a home can help save energy and pollution over the life of a building. Moe about the energy use over the life of a building at http://www.greenbuildingsolutions.org/Main-Menu/Life-Cycle-Assessment.
