The Craftsman Builder
By Art Boericke & Barry Shapiro.
Another classic title of the handmade houses genre by the authors of Handmade Houses: A Guide to the Woodbutcher's Art. And dare we say, this one is even better than its predecessor! A photo-journal of “strong, cheap, joyous neighbourly dwellings” made from natural materials (wood, stone, adobe etc.) by dedicated self-taught builders, it is a book you return to again and again. Super inspirational, as all craftsmen-centric books are, it'll have you dreaming of that day when you can finally pack your bags and 'go bush'.
