Welcome to the new Green on Gift website! As a green building consultant, I’ve often dreamed of renovating my own home. I wanted to practice what I preach and test out some new ideas firsthand. Here I’ll be detailing the process of renovating my home to showcase green products and techniques.
I had some specific criteria when buying a home. I wanted an older home that needed a new kitchen, bathroom, and other improvements that would give me the opportunity to make green upgrades. I wanted it to be in a good walking neighborhood with local amenities, since I also plan on living in it.
The house is located in North Ormewood Park on Gift Avenue (hence the name of this blog) in southeast Atlanta. The house scores a 77 on walkscore.com, which is pretty good for this car friendly city.
