The new issue of House & Home is now available.

House & Home hits Kootenay newsstands

New issue features stories about flooring, wine and green building.

The fall edition of House & Home has hit Kootenay newsstands, and inside you can learn about green building, freeing yourself from clutter and the best way to store your wine.

“Knowing the average home is saturated with products and processes harmful to personal and global health, I paraphrase Dr. King to say it is no longer a choice between green building and non-green building in the world, it’s green building and non-existence,” writes Nelson architect Matthew Stanley.

In his piece Building Green, Stanley goes through the different certification programs that exist locally for green building, and highlights the work of Carrie Fitzsimons and Dave Oosthuizen.

“Building green is about designing for today and for tomorrow,” he writes.

Elsewhere in the issue Laurel Collins writes about “how to create a clean canvas for a fresh start to anything you want”.

“Creating a clean slate means de-cluttering and this includes all kinds of clutter,” she writes. “Common clutter, as well as mental and emotional clutter.”

She offers simple strategies to rid your house of the old magazines, broken toys and junk drawers.

Trisha Elliott writes about a dream home in Shutty Bench.

“This elaborate blue and white palace of pillars, turrets, angles and contours sits upon an elegant, landscaped property that extends down to a sandy beach,” she writes.

The piece includes an interview with Rick Short, owner of Red Dog Carpentry.

Elliott also writes about flooring, and interviewed Wendi Thomson of Maglio’s Building Centre.

Other stories in the issue are by Andrea Bell about winter planning and Wendy Kelly on wine storage.

House & Home is published twice a year by Black Press.
