Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stone House: A Guide to Self-Building with Slipforms has been the leading resource for people interested in building with stone and slipforms since it was first released in 2003. Stonefield Publishing's revised edition of this classic has two new chapters from author Tomm Stanley and many new photographs; in addition, the original pictures and diagrams have been digitally enhanced.Stone House contains all the hard knowledge, helpful tips, and fresh ideas you'll need to successfully build a stone home of your own. Tomm Stanley, an international business consultant, active ecologist, and all around handyman--who decided to go for his dream of building his own house--leads you through the entire process. Using a lighthearted narrative approach, Tomm describes the trials and tribulations that accompanied the wonderful successes he experienced as a first-time self-builder creating his own house of stone.Self-builders not working with stone will also find this book inspirational, educating, and entertaining. Alternative-building advocates will be interested in the eco-friendly approach that Tomm takes to building as much of his house as possible from locally sourced materials.
