Essential reading for anyone planning to design an eco-home

Designing an eco-house is as much about working with your natural surroundings as it is about planning to use the right materials for your building. In this book, Christopher Day draws on his extensive experience to explain the key principles of ecological house design. Beautifully illustrated, it highlights how aesthetics arise from eco-responsible design: they are not add-ons, nor are ecology and art in conflict. This book will give you essential guidance in working with your surroundings, understanding what you can do yourself, choosing your materials, making sure your eco home suits your needs, eco-building without relying on technology, and refitting an existing building. This book is essential for anyone who wants to create a beautiful home that is in harmony with its location, is a healthy and pleasant place to live, and is environmentally friendly.
