Item description for Diary of an Eco-builder by Will Anderson...

Will Anderson's monthly features in The Independent have an enthusiastic following; readers are following his progress from finding a plot, getting planning permission and building himself a stunning contemporary eco home, which mirrors the fine-tuned ecology of a tree. Drawing on his columns in The Independent, Will has created a diary that will be invaluable to anyone contemplating building their own eco house.

The Diary of an Eco Builder focuses specifically on environmental issues through the story of his attempt to realise an inspiring and challenging vision. Honest, amusing and unexpected, it highlights all the key issues which arise when you build an eco house, records the process of the nitty gritty of self build, and provides contacts and references for more information.

The Energy Saving Trust is using Will's house as a case study and will monitor and evaluate the house to learn from the way it performs.

In providing a diary format to chart the daily challenges of such a venture, DIARY OF AN ECO-BUILDER covers all the major challenges of the process and will provide homeowners and would-be builders with both inspiration and insight. Perfect for any library strong in 'do it yourself' or home reconstruction or construction projects.

Rubbish.  May 26, 2007
I bought this book expecting to get a few tips and ideas for building an eco-friendly house. Yes, the ultimate product is a 'green' building, but it turns out the author spent almost half a million pounds building this massive, wasteful house in the centre of London. Throughout the book he cuts corners and is constantly apologising for using not-so-green methods, for example a massive concrete foundation.
Buy this if you have a lot of money to waste and you don't care how much you damage the environment during the building process.
Don't buy it if you wish to learn about eco-building.
