Don't be put off by the title,
This review is from: Diary of an Eco-Builder (Paperback)
This is a really lovely book that can be read cover to cover or dipped into when the mood takes you. I'm a self builder, eco-building anorak and know-all, but still found loads of inspiration in these sumptuous pages. The author has a refreshingly rigorous approach to sustainable design combined with, IMHO, a great visual design sense that made me re-think a number of my assumptions.
Issues are explored and uncertainties are aired and I hope there is a follow up that builds on the lessons learned.
Whether you are a weekend DIY dabbler, serious self builder or 'Grand Designs' dreamer, buy this book, it's a bargain and also makes a great present.
