The Woodland House
"Full of colour photographs, this is a visual guide to how Ben Law built his home in the woods. It is also a practical manual and the story of a man realising a lifetime's dream to build one of the most sustainable and beautiful homes in Britain." "This book details the evolving design process, identification of material requirements, costings, project management and the actual building. It proves that low cost, low impact and high aesthetics can go hand in hand and that it is possible to build green and to build affordably."--BOOK JACKET.
