An Interesting Book 20 Jun. 2010
By Jeff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have three copies of Woodstock Handmade Houses by Haney & Ballantine, and a copy of both of Boericke & Shapiro's books, Handmade Houses and The Craftsman Builder. I also have a copy of The Hand-Sculpted House, by Evans, Smith & Smiley plus a number of other books on "alternative" and creative building. I bought this book because of the picture of the cob house (I love cob!!) on the front cover and because of the title. I was a bit disappointed, though, because a couple of the houses in the book are not what I would call "handmade" houses. In particular, Chris Rawlings' house and the houses of Kidder and Kramer. These houses have a lot of creative furnishings, but the houses themselves are not particularly "handmade." And why is Thomas Fetterman's soaking tub included in a book about handmade houses? It could easily have come out of any house in House Beautiful magazine. There are some very interesting houses in the book, including the cob house of Rainbow Lonestar, who lives in an intentional community in Southwest Virginia and Eliphante, which is in the Arizona desert near Sedona. But the premise of the book, handmade houses, is spoiled by the inclusion of the less-than-handmade houses. It is a good effort, but it doesn't measure up to the classics written by Haney & Ballantine or Boericke & Shapiro and I think the choice of the title is a bit lazy. I'm glad to have it in my collection and I look forward to a future effort by the authors that does more justice to the concept of "handmade."

I bought this as a gift for my dad. He got other things too but he couldn't put this book down. If you are into craftsmanship or architecture, you will love this book!
