Build with Adobe
This practical guide to building adobe homes was written from the author's many years of experience with adobe, and it is refreshingly no-nonsense:
“What can you spend?”
“Where will you put it?”
“Who is going to build it?”
This new updated and enlarged edition includes hundreds of photographs, drawings and house plans as well as new information about passive solar heating and cooling, and specific details on construction.
