Books on Sustainable Building


THE NATURAL HOUSE

The natural house

Author - D. Chiras
There have been many books with this title - some of dubious provenance. This one, from the highly rated Real Goods stable is the only one I know that covers all the 'alternative' natural house building methods - straw bale, cob, rammed earth, paper-crete etc etc. An excellent place to start if you are thinking of building something different.
