The Hand-Sculpted House: A Practical and Philosophical Guide to Building a Cob Cottage: The Real Goods Solar Living Book

The Hand-Sculpted House: A Practical and Philosophical Guide to Building a Cob Cottage: The Real Goods Solar Living BookIanto Evans
The authors build a house the way others create a natural garden. They use the oldest, most available materials imaginable?earth, clay, sand, straw, and water?and blend them to redefine the future (and past) of building. Cob (the word comes from an Old English root, meaning lump) is a mixture of non-toxic, recyclable, and often free materials. Building with cob requires no forms, no cement, and no machinery of any kind. Builders actually sculpt their structures by hand. The Hand-Sculpted House is theoretical and philosophical, but intensely practical as well. You will get all the how-to information to undertake a cob building project. As the modern world rediscovers the importance of living in sustainable harmony with the environment, this book is a bible of radical simplicity.

Off The Grid Homes: Case Studies for Sunstainable Living

Off The Grid Homes: Case Studies for Sunstainable LivingLori Ryker
Global warming, ozone depletion, and acid rain are distressing buzzwords of our day. Our overdependence on fossil fuels for virtually all energy needs and our overuse of other resources have come with serious side effects. Nowhere is this reality more apparent than in our homes. In Off the Grid Homes, architect Lori Ryker addresses these issues in a straightforward and understandable way. We are pouring thousands of dollars into running our homes each year, which, in addition to depleting our pocketbooks, wreaks havoc on the environment. Ryker, however, describes a win-win solution. It is possible to harness the power of the environment by utilizing clean-energy generators, such as photovoltaic panels, wind turbines, solar water heaters, and geothermal systems, to conserve precious resources and save money. Houses can be completely or partially off the grid-that is, homes can be entirely self-sustaining or they can be tied to municipal energy sources while still employing resource-conserving technologies.
