4.0 out of 5 stars Earth Sheltered Houses - Rob Roy, 4 Feb 2011
This review is from: Earth-Sheltered Houses: How to Build an Affordable Underground Home (Mother Earth News Wiser Living Series) (Paperback)
I enjoyed this book and did not put it down until I had finished it. Rob Roy's style is easy to follow and his methods make a lot of sense. The diagrams are clear and concise but the small monochrome photographs let this book down a little. The colour photograph section is very limited, it would be nice to see more examples of what has been acheived using Rob Roy's methods. Being an American publication, the book obviously has it's downside for someone looking to construct a home in Europe, especially where reference to imperial measurements and product names are concerned. Not exactly the book I was hoping for but inspiring just the same.

This review is from: Earth-Sheltered Houses: How to Build an Affordable Underground Home (Mother Earth News Wiser Living Series) (Paperback)
Top book on the subject and although american based it has most of the principles and facts available for you to use the book as a manual and not just a load of pretty pictures. Recommended for those interested in the subject as well as qualifying as a coffee table piece. Good stuff.

This review is from: Earth-Sheltered Houses: How to Build an Affordable Underground Home (Mother Earth News Wiser Living Series) (Paperback)
I loved how this book gave you practical details and insights that you do not normally get from a technical book. It gave you details about his learning curve from mistakes as he built the various properties. Very well written and worth a read if you want to build your own earth shelter home.
