Green building

Welcome to our green building section!

In this part of the site, you'll find a huge range of books, ebooks and resources covering green building, that also answer the key questions 'what is green building?' and, for that matter, 'what is a green building'?!

If you're looking to build an eco home on the cheap, look no further than the fascinating $50 and up Underground House Book, and get yourself a copy of our new eBook, Grounds for Hope - Ways to Live Legally on Cheap Land in the UK. If, on the other hand, you're planning your own eco 'Grand Designs' home, then Ecohouse: A Design Guide and The Green Self Build Book should be your companions.

Many of us, of course, already have a home that we are simply looking to turn into an green home. In that case, Eco-Refurbishment - A Guide To Saving & Producing Energy In The Home and Converting to an Eco-friendly Home - The Complete Handbook will be indispensable. Good guides to eco paints and applying finishing touches to your eco home or green building can be found in the form of A Handbook For Eco Paints & Finishes, and Using Natural Finishes - Lime & Earth-based Plasters, Renders & Paints. For those looking for information on DIY off-grid photovoltaics, we can recommend the DIY 12 Volt Solar Power handbook, available in both eBook and printed versions.

If you're looking a build something a little different to the modernist eco house, then grab a copy of Building with Cob, Building with Straw Bales, or The Complete Yurt Handbook.

Finally, if you want some inspiration for building your green home, Ben Law's stunning The Woodland House is a great place to start, as are Shelter and Builders of the Pacific Coast.

Happy green building!
