Natural Building Techniques, a guide to ecological methods and materials-Tom Woolley


Tom Woolley is an architect based in Northern Ireland and an RSUA member.

As the the need to respond to climate change becomes a serious requirement for all building projects, so too does our understanding of how these bio-based and renewable materials can help to reduce carbon emissions. With convincing evidence that natural materials work as well as, if not better than, conventional materials, this helpful guide offers an outline of many of the materials, products and methods of construction that are available, equipping readers with confidence to create healthy, ecological homes.

With 200 colour photos, this comprehensive book will be of interest to self-builders, home-owners, architects, environmentalists who want to reduce the impact of construction on the planet.
