"Green" Qualities of Old Houses

Restoring an old home is really recycling on a grand scale. Extending the useful lifespan of a structure keeps literally tons of material out of landfills. Landfills themselves create an obvious environmental impact by altering the landscape. Additionally, much of demolition waste dumped in the landfill is wood (framing lumber, flooring, subfloor, sheathing, siding, lath, cabinets, etc.) and will decompose releasing carbon to the atmosphere.

I've read I should remove the wallpaper first. But...has anyone had luck with ignoring that… Continue
