Readers' Home Improvement Photos (Slideshow)

From an insulated attic cover to a pocket door -- which created an air lock between the front door and living space -- readers sent in photos of their energy-saving home improvements and green renovations. Click through for photos of an old Victorian house in downtown Stratford, Canada, renovated with VOC-free paint and FSC-certified wood, an entire house wrapped in Exterior Insulation and Finish System (EIFS), and a solar array atop a deck built with hardware store materials. If you missed last week's Readers' Photos it's not too late too fall into our Readers' Fall Foliage Photos slideshow and check out our Green Materials Guide to plan a home improvement of your own.
