Overview
The best-selling and highly regarded reference to sustainable construction gets an update It s refreshed with a completely revised introduction, a bright new cover, and extensive online resource tie-ins.

This groundbreaking book doesn t just tell you about green house-building techniques: it actually shows you, with more than 1,200 step-by-step photographs that follow the actual erection of an alternative building from site selection to final-touch interior details. Readers will get a clear sense of the real world challenges as Snell and Callahan create a lovely country cottage using four methods: straw bale, cob, cordwood, and modified stick-frame.

Along with sidebars throughout, there s a thorough discussion of the fundamentals of building construction, alternative approaches, and designing a beautiful yet environmentally responsible home. Building Green was the first book of its kind and it remains heads and shoulders above other titles in this field.
