Tour of Healthy Home in Front Royal

Those of us who are sensitive to formaldehyde and pesticides want our homes to be free of these toxins. Some people have had their residences specially built to be free of harmful chemicals.

A support group for the chemically sensitive arranged a tour of a lovely home near Front Royal, Virginia that was designed to be environmentally safe. Those of us who went were treated to a visually stunning contemporary house with lush colorful gardens. Some of the floors were polished concrete with radiant heat. Attractive veneers over formaldehyde-free marine grade plywood made warm ceilings and woodwork.

The setting was a pastoral area along the Shenandoah River. To the east were the Blue Ridge Mountains and Skyline Drive.
