Shane does a superb job of explaining the topics in his book.

Well worth reading!”[/testimonial1]

It is remarkable how simple and at times obvious some of the changes in thinking required can be while making such a huge difference on our unsustainable use of energy can be. Keep up the good work!”[/testimonial1_arial]

[testimonial1_arial author=”Colin via”] “5.0 out of 5 stars Great Direction,
I would have loved to have this book prior to retrofitting our 1950’s home as many local building suppliers were giving me information that contradicted one another and only supported their products which sent me to the internet. Once there nobody had any idea what local building standards and practices were as most were in warmer climates.Future Proof helped answer some of my still outstanding questions and reaffirmed some of my decisions which I came to after accumulating numerous opinions from outside sources which took weeks and months to gather. I found many people/businesses don’t like to give info unless you already have some very specific knowledge or direction. A lot of my received “advise” came across as if I was bothering them because I was asking questions for clarification. Many times I was just directed to a product website as they were not knowledgeable themselves.Future Proof also cleared up a couple mistakes I made which were very obvious when I read them in print.We are happy in our retro home. If building new we would definitely adhere to the Future Proof practices to not only lower our bills substantially, but also to get a great return on resale.With some of the insulating practices (Spray foam and cellulose) noted in the book which we had already applied we can happily say that our natural gas bill over the cold winter months had dropped 2/3. Over the last five years it has already paid for itself almost twice.I still need to get my hands on some thermal imaging equipment to check some questionable spots.We will definitely be implementing some other ideas which we read as well. Great Book![/testimonial1_arial]
