Jacqueline Powers is a residential remodeling general contractor, interior designer and author of a workbook for homeowners titled Transitioning to Green. First published in Sept. of 2009, it has been revised in Jan. of 2011. Jacqueline is a member of the Cascadia Chapter of the US Green Building Council and the NW EcoBuilding Guild, whose memberships instigated her desire to find green and sustainable materials for her remodeling projects. Her own experience of having lived in over 20 homes, as well as time spent in the flooring materials, cabinetry and interior design fields have provided her with a broad perspective on how we live in our homes and care for them. Today, spreading the word about using better materials for the residents’ health and the health of the planet is her main interest. She has added Sustainability Consultancy for residential and commercial to her business specialties.
