This revised and updated edition of the guide to the process of building for yourself gives both inspiration and practical information.

It relates personal experiences of putting theory into practice; outlines an environmentally friendly approach to design, choice of materials and energy conservation; includes a practical guide to organizing a project which covers land, finance, permissions and professional help; and includes a detailed manual on the Segal Method of timber construction, because of its particular advantage to self-builders.

Jon Broome and Brian Richardson are both architects with a great deal of self-build experience.
