Summary
"Covering a broad range of options for natural building, Alternative Construction examines straw bale, light clay, cob, adobe, rammed earth and pise, earthbag, earth-sheltered, bamboo, and hybrid systems for residential and low-rise commercial structures." "Whether you're a designer, builder, or owner, this book will help you to combine indigenous building materials with modern construction systems to create low-impact, high-quality buildings that meet the highest levels of comfort, health, and safety."--BOOK JACKET
