This is a "how-to" book on the construction of a small, simple and sustainable house. The book uses detailed illustrations, captioned text, short videos, and 3D models to walk the reader through eight distinct phases of construction. Readers are also encouraged to build 3D construction models for their own projects. Each chapter ends with a "Hands-On" section with how-to tutorials that include navigating through a design model, excavating a model base, assembling a foundation wall, fabricating and erecting framing members, extruding 3D objects from 2D details, and running pipes and wires through the walls and ceiling.
