By russell marra on September 8, 2012
Format: Paperback
If your taste in architecture runs to chrome and glass, this book is not for you. These houses are in no way traditional, and look like the builders had no knowlege of actual building styles or techniques. These are all homes built by Artists for themselves, using found materials. They are not built by carpenters using standard materials. Some are gorgeous, but all look comfortable and homey. These homes look like they belong in a book of fairy tales, or some hollywood movie set. The photography is beautiful. My only complaint is that the book is too small - both in it's dimentions and length. Don't know how much trouble it would be to get them to pass the building codes, but I would be happy to live in any of them. If you have any appreciation for the arts, or a love for nature, you will enjoy this book.

Boericke's books on wood butchering are the best in existence. I had them when I was younger and lost them somewhere along the way. So glad to have found them again. It's time for this kind of revival in building.

I found this book to be a shallow mirror of the first book in the series which I thought was very good. While this one had some interesting parts over all I ended up disappointed.
