Current “wood first” thinking influences ecologically minded individuals and governments all over the world. It encourages the building of homes using sustainably managed renewable resources. It also reflects a desire to offer a creative quality alternative to the modern McMansions and little boxes that all look just the same. This book is a testament to those long-standing and attainable goals.

A lot has changed in building codes since this book was first drafted in 1969 . Before undertaking any construction project be sure to review plans with the appropriate engineers, architects and planners. Always ensure appropriate permits are sought and obtained for your jurisdiction.
