Home Work. Lloyd Kahn.

Home Work.

Shelter Publications, 4/04. Handbuilt Shelter. Item #20441
ISBN: 0936070331

From Amy at Builders Booksource:

Folks from all over the world started sending Lloyd Kahn notes about their
hand built houses when they heard that he was doing a follow-up to his 1973
book, Shelter. This is more comprehensive and just as inspiring. Don't
expect much information on how to build these structures, but for the most part
these buildings are simple enough that you can figure out how to build them on
your own with your own flair.

From the publisher:

Building on the enormous success of the original Shelter, Lloyd Kahn
continues his odyssey of finding and exploring the most magnificent and unusual
hand-built houses in existence. Among the intriguing domiciles described in Home
Work are a Japanese-style stilt house accessible only by a cable across a river;
a stone house in a South African valley whose roof serves as a baboon
trampoline; multi-level treehouses on the South China Sea; and a bottle house in
the Nevada desert. Over 1,500 photos illustrate various innovative architectural
styles and natural building materials that have gained popularity in the last
two decades such as cob, papercrete, bamboo, adobe, strawbale, timber framing,
and earthbags.
