5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this book and leave the others on the shelf, 6 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been toying with building my own sustainable house for a few years, and have bought half a dozen books. This one leaves the rest standing. A delight to read with very good practical advice often mentioning the things that other books overlook,sparkling dewdrops of philosophy and a source book for inspiration. What more could you want?
Get the book, get the land and get building!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for pipedreamers, 8 Sep 2009
If like me you love beer, and love to share beer, you probably brew beer and may have dreamt of setting up a microbrewery. This delightfully readable book is your best first step. Having read it I had a much clearer idea of all that would be involved and have decided to stick to home brewing. Mr Bruning you may have saved me thousands of pounds.


The Woodwright's Eclectic Workshop
The Woodwright's Eclectic Workshop

5.0 out of 5 stars Just brilliant, 8 Sep 2009
The most unusual collection of clever wooden things to make at home. A great book for armchair woodworkers too; just pouring over the pages by the fireside brings hours of pleasure.


West Alum Press Button Max Min Thermometer
West Alum Press Button Max Min Thermometer

2.0 out of 5 stars Pretty but accurate?, 8 Sep 2009
I bought two of these thermometers because I thought that the attention to the rugged casing would generally mean a better quality thermometer. They did not both read the same temperature (1.5 degrees different)and one did not read the same on the max and min scales (1 degree different). this calls both of them into doubt over accuracy.
