What is a responsible renovation? 

Especially in old houses, I believe we are just stewards of the house and we need to keep the best interests of the house in mind when we are making changes. The neighborhood may have a certain fabric that needs to be respected. Construction is a huge source of energy consumption and thinking about our impact on the environment while we are modifying our houses is important.
