Since last year when we announced our partnership with Taunton Press, publishers of

Fine Homebuilding magazine and other resources, excitement has been growing here at BuildingGreen. Now we’re thrilled to announce that GreenBuildingAdvisor.com will formally launch January 20, 2009, at the International Builders Show. This new residential green building website is the result of an incredible effort by Peter Yost, our director of residential programs; managing editor Dan Morrison, formerly of

Fine Homebuilding; Martin Holladay, former editor of

Energy Design Update; and others, and supported by our Advisors—15 of the nation’s top green residential practitioners.

Combining expert advice, nearly 1,000 thoroughly vetted construction details, real-world examples of green homes, and residential

GreenSpec product guidance,

GreenBuildingAdvisor.com will serve architects, builders, remodelers, and engaged homeowners. While a great deal of information will be free, becoming a GBA Pro for a monthly or annual fee will provide access to the entire site as well as a monthly print newsletter. The how-to information in the GreenBuildingAdvisor.com newsletter will complement the in-depth analysis and news provided in

Environmental Building News.


EBN readers will recognize the name “Green Building Advisor” from a tool BuildingGreen first published in 1999, which guided users to green strategies based on information they entered about their projects. A similar function is included in the new website, along with an encyclopedia, clear information on code issues, and strong community features.

We encourage you to go to GreenBuildingAdvisor.com to sign up for the free e-letter and to check out the site after it debuts on January 20.
