Alex Wilson on Affordability

Alex Wilson, founder of Environmental Building News, and more recently, the Resilient Design Institute, has through the years been one of my primary influences. You could say it is a sort of love-hate relationship, because Alex has always been ahead of the pack, taking on issues that continually shake up my faulty assumptions and bad habits.

In his current posting on The Green Building Advisor blog, Wilson reflects on some work he completed on his own home. His observations affirm my own conclusion: if it ain’t affordable, it ain’t sustainable.
