Building a House for MCS

Steve & I have been working on our new book, Building a House for Multiple Chemical Sensitivity: a Mold-Resistant, Low-Tox Home. 

MCS book cover

(That title is a mouthful! LOL)

In the book, we explain in detail how we built the house and thought processes behind decisions regarding chemicals, mold resistance and prevention, and making the house as healthy as we could. We took over 40 precautions against mold and tried to make the house as scientifically low-chemical as possible, except when mold resistance needed to be prioritized over low-chemical (such as plastic window frames versus metal, the cheap version of which can cause thermal bridging and therefore condensation).

Steve took a lot of photographs along the way; we put over 60 in the book.

About Christa Upton

I am a wife and mother of three children ages 11, 14, and 18. I used to be a stay-at-home mom (teaching piano & dance, volunteering, etc). From 2007 to 2010, I suffered accidental Toxic Injury (also called Multiple Chemical Sensitivity or MCS). MCS has had major impact on our family, but the forced time in bed has given me time to write. So far, I have published 4 children's books (2 in e-book format on Kindle, one in Print-on-Demand at CreateSpace, and one printed by a local printer). Sometimes I miss my old life, but I love writing for children!
