Summary
"...focuses on the lives of people who built homes and secondary structures in harmony with their natural surroundings. These intrepid individuals used timeless building techniques that are doable by nonprofessionals, from framing walls and windows, to setting floor joints and building roofs. The stories reveal the successes, mistakes, and even later renovations, as well as the personal dreams of those who experienced this back-to-nature process..."--P. [4] of cover
