Crafting the Considerate House
Title: Crafting the Considerate House

ISBN: 9780982670958

From the Publisher:

Crafting the Considerate House tells the story of designing and building a home for our times--one that is mindful of both environmental and dollar costs, yet responsive to our needs and wants. In his fast moving narrative, author David Gerstel, a skilled and seasoned builder with several admired books to his credit, involves the reader in the challenge and excitement of creating a house that is highly energy efficient, healthy, and a pleasure to live in. You experience the project up close from first imaginings through the final construction of interior finishes and meet and share in the camaraderie of the remarkable craftspeople who worked alongside the author. Even as you are entertained by the lively and thoughtful chronicle, you are educated in the crafting of a sturdy, dollarwise, and striking home.

From Builders Booksource:

David Gerstel has been a friend and customer of Builders Booksource for as long as we can remember (28 years?). So maybe we aren't the best source for an objective review of "Considerate House"...but then again, we're convinced that every builder, architect, homeowner, or would be homeowner needs to read David's new book...and will enjoy it as well!

The Publishers Website has excerpts from the book and reviews as well, check it out...
