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.

Finally I get this ebook, thanks for all these Building Green, New Edition: A Complete How-To Guide to Alternative Building Methods Earth Plaster * Straw Bale * Cordwood * Cob * Living Roofs (Building Green: A Complete How-To Guide to Alternative) I can get now!
I was suspicious at first when I got redirected to the membership site. Now I'm really excited I found this online library....many thanks Kisses
I did not think that this would work, my best friend showed me this website, and it does! I get my most wanted eBook
I found out about Playster in the New York times and I'm very happy about it: “One of the newest contenders in the crowded field, a company based in Montreal called Playster, offers music, games, TV shows, movies and e-books through its service. Playster recently struck a deal with HarperCollins to include 14,000 backlist books in its service.”
My friends are so mad that they do not know how I have all the high quality ebook which they do not!
I stumbled upon Playster 2 months ago. I've upgraded to a premium membership already. The platform now carries audiobooks from: Simon & Schuster, Macmillan, HarperCollins UK, Recorded Books, Tantor, and Highbridge. HarperCollins US titles are already in the library. Great service.
so many fake sites. this is the first one which worked! Many thanks
wtffff i do not understand this!

An excellent book!
By John Friedlander
This book is a great read for anyone who wants to know more about four building techniques with demonstrable "green" or "sustainable" attributes. It strikes a good balance between theory and practice, as well as moving from concept through design to execution. Beautifully illustrated with copious photos, this thick and heavy book is a pleasure to either read from cover to cover as I did, skim or pick and choose what you want to explore in greater depth. The co-authors approach the material from somewhat different viewpoints – one a bit more starry-eyed than the other, but both of them accomplished builders with pragmatic concerns about how to build structures which shelter the body, inspire the mind, and sit as gently as possible on the planet. This is all done while administering just enough – but not too much – righteous political argument about how wasteful many other methods of building and construction are.
You don't need to know much already about the subject material to get value from this book, as it is written clearly enough to convey basic concepts to complete beginners, while providing enough detail to satisfy more advanced readers. I look forward to sharing the book with my precocious twelve year-old nephew who is fascinated with 3D computer modeling and architecture, that is, *after* I'm done with it!

Very explicit, honest opinion
Very explicit. Wrote by an an experienced builder who knows how to combine all methods in order to accomplish quality construction. All natural building methods are explained, with pros and cons. The author gives lots of good honest tips. Traditional building is explained too, including pro and cons. Written pleasantly, easy to read, accompanied by lots of good pictures.

Great overview of several building techniques
By Dr Dave
The best thing about this book is the degree of detail about specific aspects of building with different building techniques - straw bale, cob, cordwood and modified wood frame. Copiously illustrated with photos taken as the authors actually build a small guest cottage, you really get an appreciation for how much planning and general building knowledge is required to construct a quality dwelling - something that videos just can't match. It was well worth reading and I highly recommend it to novice builder wanna-be's. It should make you think about just how much you don't know and need to learn before you try building something!
