Product description

Synopsis

Over 130 clear line drawings and step-by-step images provide the reader with all the information needed to build this 300-square-foot cabin from start to finish, and a full-colour section shows off the beautiful design features of this charming "green" cabin. All design considerations are covered, as well as an interesting and thorough discussion of the geometry of the octagon. Separate chapters are devoted to: site preparation; forming and pouring the slab; timber framing; the light-weight living roof and the cordwood masonry walls.Full instructions for the interior floor and wall finishing are included, as well as a basic plumbing system featuring the "humanure" composting toilet system. The book concludes with a performance evaluation of the building and a complete costing analysis. "Stoneview" is appropriate for any climate. This latest book by Rob Roy will appeal to his many followers, as well as those new to alternative buildings. Instructions are designed for both experienced and novice builders.
