Read from September 26 to 29, 2009 , read count: 1

The author decides to venture into the architecture and carpentry of designing and constructing a place of his own near the house owned by him and his wife. Loaded with interesting forays into the history of both arenas — of which his level of interest matched mine well — I gradually came to share his dream "hut", and frequently enjoyed looking at a picture of it on the front cover with him at work inside. I was left envying his experience and the workspace he accomplished. I'd recommend this book to any property or home owner who might entertain the notion of some improvement. This book was added to my list after enjoying two of the author's later books: Omnivore's Dilemma and In Defense of Food.
