With support from Key Partners, the Louisiana Dept. of Natural Resources and U.S. Dept. of Energy, Building Your Louisiana House – Homeowners Guide has been developed and printed. It was written to be a comprehensive, yet consumer-friendly, companion to LaHouse.
The 64-page guidebook includes a brief section on key building science basics that are critical to avoid building problems in this climate, a detailed checklist to use as a planning and analysis tool, a reference guide section that explains the items in the checklist and a long list of sources of additional information.
In addition, the www.LouisianaHouse.org Web site has been expanded to include two educational branches – Your House and Your Landscape. At this time, it includes consumer educational features on disaster-resistance, termites and lawn and garden management. It will expand in both breadth and depth.
