Sticks, Stones, Mud Homes by Nigel Noyes

Book Description

There is a fascinating diversity to how to we live, from the tight confines of inner city one-room boxes to expansive accommodation on isolated rural retreats. Whatever the location or scale of our potential sanctuaries, there exists the opportunity to enhance these spaces to something we can genuinely refer to as home. "Sticks, Stones, Mud Homes" is a book about eco-friendly living, founded on the principles of minimal impact and sustainable practices. The buildings in the book are designed to conserve energy, to create new life from old, and employ good recycling practices that work in with the environment. With ingenuity, determination and a new aesthetic sensibility, seemingly unconventional materials can often be adapted to building in some way. The houses featured are made from rammed earth, baled straw and mudbricks, from salvaged material, recycled timber and stone, and from tin and other inexpensive contemporary materials.
