Exclusive US printing of the 2008 Second Edition updated to include the latest on the legal battle to keep Tony's house. In 1997, Tony Wrench and his partner built and moved into a low impact roundhouse. This is his story, both a moving and witty account of realizing a lifetime's dream, and a practical 'how to' manual for anyone who is able to 'lift a rafter'. Tony shares his skills and techniques from the process of visualising and designing a house to lifting the living roof, infilling the walls laying out rooms and adding renewable, autonomous technology. A must for anyone interested in low impact living and cordwood construction.
