Description

Natural Building looks at back-to-basics architecture for twenty-first-century homes. Natural-building and strawbale expert Catherine Wanek shares the spectrum of "natural building" materials available, their properties and their aesthetic potential, and how they have been combined to create beautiful and comfortable buildings in a variety of climates. Learning from time-tested techniques of our ancestors, see how to create homes from earth, straw, stone, wood, and bamboo, as well as modern eco-materials. Find out how choosing local, natural materials for a home is generally healthier, cheaper, and more earth-friendly than contemporary processed building materials. After all, that is what natural building is about-bringing nature back into our environment, into our very homes. Natural building is about a floor you want to walk on in your bare feet.show more
