The Arts & Crafts movement popularized more than a century ago is currently enjoying a revival--and with good reason. Finally, the "lowly" bungalow, once considered too small and style-starved, is gaining popularity as new bungalow communities crop up across the nation. With its emphasis on handcrafted beauty, quality workmanship, and respect for natural materials, today's bungalow style offers friendly streetscapes and sensible, ecologically oriented homes that work for modern families.

Intriguing drawings demonstrate how readers can expand and adapt the plans to fit their own budgets, family sizes, style preferences, and building sites.

After a brief look at adobe's rich history, ADOBE HOUSES FOR TODAY surveys adobe's advantages as a building material. Next, readers take an eye-opening tour through the facts and fantasies of energy conservation. Then, the heart of the book illustrates the basic and expanded versions of the plans, using them as examples of design techniques that increase livability and control costs in any house. The book also explains site requirements, adobe construction, and estimating basics with an adobe house that "assembles itself." ADOBE HOUSES FOR TODAY and its associated construction drawings are valuable, enjoyable tools not only for those buying, building, or remodeling a house, but also for contractors, drafters, drafting teachers, and real estate professionals.
