Best Books: Building and Home Repairs

Sharon November 4th, 2009

Hi Folks – Way back a long time ago I mentioned that the forthcoming AIP book needs an updated and improved bibliography, and noted I’d be asking for your help.  You all came through with a great list of cookbooks, and now I’m getting back to the writing, and it is time to do some other topics. 

So tell me – what are the best books you’ve seen about ecologically sound, low impact building, insulating, home repairs and woodworking?  Got some favorites?  Please list author and title and why you think it is worth having.  This is an area where I particularly need some help – the last time I did any major research was almost 8 years ago, so I’ve probably missed a lot of new material. 

Thanks so much!
