Description

Designing an eco home 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 eco-home design, focussing on natural methods rather than expensive technology. Beautifully illustrated, it highlights how aesthetics, comfort, and economy arise from eco-responsible design: they're 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 yourselves
  • Choosing your materials
  • Making sure your eco home suits your needs
  • Ecobuilding without relying on technology
  • Refitting an existing building
