really liked it

There are not many philosophers anymore, and those that are around are in universities somewhat isolated from the common person. That is what made this book interesting. Larry Haun, who is a life long carpenter from the Great Plains, is also an insightful sage on many topics of life and building.

Born during the Great Depression, he tells the story of housing through the eyes of a carpenter. One of the wonderful parts of the book were all the questions he asks along the way. Instead of giving anecdotal, easy answers, Haun leaves the questions hang, drawing the reader in to think deeply about our lives and what we have created in our 'civilized' world.
