Editorial Reviews

Review

Jessica Kellner’s book comes to us in the nick of time. We need a new, more enlightened approach to housing and this book provides the roadmap. Housing Reclaimed could put a whole generation on the path to comfortable, secure sustainability. Jessica has written a beautiful and necessary book that everyone who lives under a roof should read. — Bryan Welch, Publisher, Mother Earth News, Natural Home & Garden and the Utne Reader Author, Beautiful & Abundant: Creating the World We Want

In a time when so much of the news around housing is negative, Jessica Kellner offers an optimistic but practical approach to building a home—mortgage free! Jessica proves that, with a little creativity and a willingness to step outside the constructs of modern housing, anyone can build a dream house. — Robyn Griggs Lawrence Author, Simply Imperfect: Revisiting the Wabi-Sabi House

I have read numerous books on this subject & thought this one sounded like a GREAT addition to my library....NOT so much. I found that most of the sustainable home info was same old-same old...No How-to or unique new ideas. First chapter is a "look at me" chapter on "Guy & Kay"...followed by "A History Housing Finance"...A whole chapter is dedicated to a "non-profit" group in NC (where I live & have never even HEARD of them) that buys up houses that are going to be torn down & renovates them. For those of us who are looking for terrific ideas on how to build with salvage materials, this REALLY isn't what you want. I was very dissapointed. If I were you , I wouldn't waste my money...

If you are looking for inspiration for building with reclaimed materials, look no further. From a hand-built rock outdoor fireplace to an office crafted from a grain bin (plus a sunken Japanese soaking tub built from reclaimed redwood), this book is full of great salvage ideas. Get excited about living smaller, re-purposing materials, doing construction yourself over time and living without a mortgage with this great resource.

I was so excited to find this book! Trying my best for a permaculture homestead. It looks very helpful. Shipped quickly. Thank you.
