As we move through the rebuilding efforts in New Orleans and the Gulf Coast region, more resources are being made available to improve the process.
These comes from many sources and one important resource is Global Green.
Using grant funds, the local Global Green office is providing training to local rebuilding groups to raise the bar for building efficient, durable and healthy homes.
Bill Robinson, through Train2ReBuild, delivered a one-day field exercise to point out real world examples of how the process can be improved.
The highlights were insulating gutted homes, air sealing, and material selection.
During the one-day outing the importance of preplanning and team building were emphasized.
