It has taken Lloyd Khan a lifetime to amass photographs, stories, with pure infectious knowledge and shared joy of self-built homes. Even if you have no interest in architecture this book fascinates. If you have an interest in what makes a building into a home, then this book alongside his earlier book titled Shelter, is essential reference. You can read it cover to cover or dip into it whenever you have a few minutes, whichever way it lifts the spirits and inspires the senses. It should be compulsory reading for any self-builder or trainee architect or town planner or builders of any trade or nationality!
