Invaluable to anyone contemplating building their own eco house
Will Anderson’s monthly features in The Independent have an enthusiastic following; readers are following his progress from finding a plot, getting planning permission and then building himself a stunning contemporary eco home. This method mirrors the fine-tuned ecology of a tree. Drawing on his columns in The Independent, Will has created a diary that will be valuable to anyone that is contemplating building their own eco house.
The Diary of an Eco Builder focuses specifically on environmental issues throughout the story of his attempt to realize an inspiring and challenging vision. Amusing, honest, and unexpected, it highlights all the key issues which arise when you build an eco house, provides contacts and references for more information and records the process of the nitty gritty of self build. The Energy Saving Trust is using Will’s house as a case study and will monitor and evaluate the house to learn from the way it performs. 256 pp.
