Thom and I are very cognizant of trying to make the repairs, updates, and changes to the house as green as possible. One thing we're really considering is the flooring for the hallways, stairs, and kitchen being something that is durable but also renewable. Right now we're leaning toward linoleum (yeah, it's back, baby!) and perhaps even cork or bamboo flooring for the hallway. We'll want carpeting up the stairs and in the upstairs hallway and there are some cool recycled products out there. We'll be keeping an eye on all of these things as we get going. We're also really committed to buying locally as much as possible so as not to support the big box stores where it can be avoided.
