Format: Paperback
I have been fortunate enough to meet Ed Paschich and hear how passionate he is about protecting the planet and building with a focus on cost, aesthetics, and ecological responsibility. In my opinion, he is a builder and designer before his time that has an understanding of the long-term needs of our ecosystems that deserves far more exploration and respect.
This book and his one on straw bale design are well written and intelligently conceived. The images are beautiful and the words inspirational. I would recommend this to anyone with an eye to sustainability and habitat-preservation, even if they are not yet considering building their own home.

Not as helpful or informative as I had expected and hoped for. It could have done with more detail on the actual construction of a tire house.

Good general reference on building a house from tires. Well organized, concise. A "work in progress" and seems to get better with each adition.
