Building Green: A Complete How-To Guide

This is an excellent and highly practical book. It's the first step-by-step green building guide that I've seen. The book is lavishly illustrated with photographs showing each step of the building process. The authors, Clarke Snell and Tim Callahan, explain techniques like Earth Plastering, Straw Bale Construction, Living Roofs, Cordwood Building and Cob Building. At over 600 pages this is a hefty book and highly useful for anyone wanting to see the nitty-gritty details of green building. The author's web site is Think Building Green.
