*eco friendly. BTW, we also used denim insulation and the lighting plan was greened up, including green undercabinet lighting.
Denim Insulation. First, your project has to be down to the studs since this rolls in like typical fiberglass insulation. Then, the cost is about 10% more than standard. For us, it came out to about $200 more. In the grand-scheme of things, $200 wasn't much. We bought ours at Greenmaker Supply in Chicago, because we live just to the west. We also went with FSC certified wood from them.

Bianco Romano - How was that eco-friendly?
Because it was left over from another project? (would have been garbage) I ask, because I like the carrara marble look.

Why was the Shaw farmhouse sink a mistake.
