Handmade Houses: A Century of Earth-Friendly Home Design
Handmade Houses celebrates some of the world’s most idiosyncratic homes from Big Sur to Sardinia. Author Richard Olsen explores how these homes and their owners paved the way for the architectural-salvage business and the reclaimed, industrial look ever popular today. Design lessons are gleaned from each home—some examples of environmentally aware construction with applicable tips for use in more mainstream scenarios. Handmade Houses is an important and relevant volume to be appreciated by anyone interested in environmentally friendly design, craft, and the expression of personal style in the home.
