Review quote

" Given the deluge ofeco friendly andzero-carbon terminology being indiscriminately tossed about within the construction industry, it is a pleasant surprise to read agreen building book that is more than an ostentatious decoration for the coffee table. Bevan and Woolley have done an excellent job in making an important and innovative building technique accessible to both layperson and professional. If I had to recommend one construction book from 2008, this would be it. Sustainability Journal
""Rachel and Tom have pulled out all the stops in producing a very comprehensive guide on building with hemp and lime. Professionally produced, carefully indexed with plenty of clear diagrams, photos and images, this is a practical, visually supported handbook for those interested in using this sustainable and renewable natural product in construction. ... this is a remarkably thorough and engaging guide to the use of lime hemp construction and I recommend it highly.""
