Welcome to Happy Home

HappyHome.How is about finding fundamental happiness by redefining home. True happiness is elusive unless we redesign our homes with the knowledge that all life is interconnected. 

Happy Home will explore the latest in the science of happiness and help you find ways to bring evidence-based design into all aspects of your home and community. In his brilliant and entertaining book "Happy City", Charles Montgomery explores how we can retrofit our cities for happiness and tackle the urgent challenges of our age. With Happy Home I hope to put some of these ideas into your hands to help you make better, healthier and more beautiful home improvement choices. 

True happiness is elusive unless we redesign our homes with the knowledge that all life is interconnected.

I believe that there is no such thing as a "sustainable home." No single thing can be sustainable. All life is sustained by underlying networks. So our health, the health of our communities, and the health of all life upon which we depend is determined by how we define "home" and how we live at home. 

Nature has the solutions for how we can thrive. In the spirit of the Living Building Challenge, we can create a future "socially just, culturally rich and ecologically restorative." Watch this inspiring video "A World of Solutions" by Louie Schwartzberg.
