In Small Strawbale you won't find 10,000 square foot "sustainable" McMansions. Instead you will find a series of designs for small houses that tread lightly on the earth. It is an inspiring book that lets us know we can live in a beautiful, natural house that uses earth's resources wisely.

This book is full of great ideas for creative buildings with floor plans from 150 to 1200 sq. ft. It's full of great pictures and ideas. I read it cover to cover the day I brought it home and am starting to go through it again.
Unfortunately this is not a how-to book. More of a pretty coffee table for inspiration book. I'd like more of a step by step something!
