The reader gets to follow the author as he builds a sustainable and hopefully zero energy house in London. There are many pictures which help illustrate new materials and maybe even methods that the author implements into his house which is helpful. There are even areas specifically designated to show readers where materials or companies used in the project can be found.

Recommends it for: The wasteful class and the seasoned tree-hugger
This is a good book to flip through and read as a picture or heading grabs you. It follows the authors quest to build an eco-friendly house for himself and family in South London on a small lot without harming the large that dominates it. Good idea source book.
Wonderful introduction to ecological construction. Have read at least three times so far, and it has given me a lot of ideas for my own renovation projects.
Great book! Wonderful resources, although many are in the UK, this is an easy read full of great information on green building from the owners perspective.
