Overview

Founded on the principles of minimal impact and sustainable practice, this resource explains how, with ingenuity, determination, and a new aesthetic sensibility, seemingly unconventional materials can be adapted to use for building a home. Designed to conserve energy, create new life from old, and employ good recycling practices that work with the environment, the featured houses are all made from rammed earth, baled straw, mudbricks, recycled timber, stone, and other inexpensive and contemporary materials. With good designs and sound building principles, these homes are not only respectful of limited environmental resources, but can also be stylish, comfortable, and economical.
