Dream home

Hindustan Times - Brunch - - Front Page -

WITH REF­ER­ENCE to your cover story on green homes ( Green­Card Hold­ers, 11 Septem­ber), there are many things that can be im­ple­mented. So­lar panels on the roof should be laid. Most of the build­ing ma­te­ri­als should be sourced lo­cally to cut down on the car­bon foot­print and gas emis­sions. Fur­ther, one should min­imise un­healthy VOC paints, primers and fin­ishes on fix­tures and wood. Also, the floor tiles should be easy to clean and no car­pets should be laid as the dust un­der the car­pet is the cause of dust al­ler­gies. And one should make it a point to min­imise the use of ad­he­sives.
