I have the land to do something with.
Its still as inspirational and meaningful as when I read it years ago.
Maybe more so...because our need for it is even greater with the great

Like Boericke/Shapiro's book, this book features houses that were built by people dissatisfied with cookie-cutter suburban houses, McMansions, and generic subdivisions in general where the houses have little personality, so these guys went to the country and took matters into their own hands, and created homes that look like works of art with scrap material and anything else they could get their hands on, often costing much less than those generic cookie cutter homes. Everything from scrap wood to old stained glass from a church, these people used such to build their own dream homes. Many of these homes were not connected to electricity, so heating was done by wood, and same for cooking. There isn't much to read, just the occasional description of these photos. In one photo, I saw a bunch of books lying down, and one of them as Handmade Houses: A Guide to Woodbuchers Art (which appeared to be the hardcover edition). Another picture I found extremely amusing was a poster in a picture frame that says: "1963 Woodstock Festival".Read more ›
