As most of you who read this blog probably know, I occasionally help out with contract projects. I want to share GreenHomeLove with you! This website is great for Do-It-Yourself home improvement people and those of us who need to hire a service professional to complete the job.

What makes this site different? It helps you find green home professionals plus it gives you insight into the sustainable community by allowing you to read about green options for your home.

Need to find a roofer to put a living roof or metal roof onto your home? No problem. GreenHomeLove gives you information about green roofing and gives you a quick comparison of your options.

Ever thought of installing solar panels? If so, you probably want to know: How much does it cost? Are they ugly? Are there different kinds of solar panels? If you’re like me, you probably don’t know much about your solar panel options. The idea is that this site will give you the tips you need to make a decision about the best way for you to go green.

The site will also allow you to connect to other green people. It’s green social networking! (Sorry, if you don’t live in Austin…you won’t be able to sign up but you can still look at the site…you just can’t post topics) If you do live in Austin, I encourage you to sign up and check it out! Let me know what you think!

Once you are signed in, you can ask other green people questions about sustainability or going green. You can leave messages for other green Austinites and find out about green events in our city!

My favorite part of the site? Say you need to replace your roof and you decide you want a green roof. You can find a service professional on this site and contact them via GreenHomeLove. You’re one step closer to helping save the environment!

Let me know what you think! Be Honest.

  1. Is this one of the websits you help create? I like it.

    Houston needs to become more green. We are the energy capital and with that comes too much pollution. Maybe someday they will "see the light" and make some changes.


Thanks for reading!
