Building your own Sustainable and Energy Efficient HouseBK0111
Build a home that will save you money, save energy, minimize carbon emissions and greenhouse gas and above all, provide exceptional thermal comfort. Building your own Sustainable and Energy Efficient House is aimed primarily at self-builders who wish to shadow the work of subcontractors they employ. It provides a step-by-step guide to the whole process from your first notion to build, right the way through to completion. In particular, it emphasises energy efficiency in both the design and construction phases for the two common methods of building: masonry and timber-frame construction. Handy checklists are provided at the end of each chapter for use by self-builders or as a briefing document for contractors.
This book is up to date, very relevant to the complexities of self building and contains a wealth of invaluable information.
