Description du produit

Revue de presse

This book is a description of the fascinating process that would lead through the design of the structure, the detailing, the construction and the fitting out. It is not a technical treatise in any sense, though the basic sketches could be used to build a similar structure. There are many good photos to back up the text, and they give a better sense of scale than the line illustrations. The book is well written with a good deal of wit and logical explanation, by a permie who is obviously in tune with living sustainably and willing to eschew much of the baggage we take for granted, but is still able to live simply and luxuriously. Highly recommended. --Michael Guerra Permaculture Magazine 27

A staggering amount of advice from an author who clearly knows his stuff --Wave Magazine

An excellent read, providing a moving and witty account of the building process --Building For A Future

Présentation de l'éditeur

In 1993, Tony Wrench evolved the concept of permaculture land, a low impact, sustainable way of life which included self-build with local materials, appropriate technology and food growing. In 1997 he and his partner built and moved into a low impact roundhouse. In Building A Low Impact Roundhouse Tony shares his many years of experience, his skills and techniques, his ups and downs, always in a witty and inspiring manner. The book covers the process of visualising and designing a house through to the practical side of lifting the living roof, infilling the walls, laying out rooms and adding renewable, autonomous technology. Building A Low Impact Roundhouse has become a classic text. Tonys home and lifestyle have attracted the interest of the media and he and his partner continue to inspire many individuals and communities to seek out ways of living more sustainably. The book is reprinted with a fascinating 10 year update which includes a major new section on the couples marvellous strawbale den. Tony also includes sections on the physical design and he writes about the lifestyle required for living in a roundhouse. He offers advice on roofs, floors, walls, compost toilets, wood stoves, kitchens, windows and on planning permissions. There are additional photographs of life in and around the dwelling and illustrations from the construction plans for this, one of the UKs most unique of homes. This true and captivating story covers the realising of a lifetimes dream, as well as being a practical how to manual for anyone who loves the idea of low impact living.
