“When I was planning to build this house, the one thing I wanted but couldn’t find was a step by step, comprehensive series of photos showing the whole process. While building this house I ended up taking over 5,000 photos…and incorporated pics from every stage in the book so anyone else can use this as a basis…to see what’s involved, and to see options of what’s possible…before you start. This brief video is just a sampling of the whole book.
The Sedona Straw Bale is a fresh look at the design and building of a practical, modern-looking Straw Bale Home in Sedona, Arizona. It details the entire project from breaking ground to moving in, showing almost 300 photos accompanied with detailed descriptions. This Photo-Journal is an ideal read for anyone interested in building their own home, whether Straw Bale, Post and Beam or even conventional stick frame, and features multiple novel solutions for increased energy efficiency and practical solutions for the Owner-Builder.
The book is presented in Adobe PDF format on a CD which will be easily readable on any computer. This allows me to include almost 300 color photos at a reasonable cost and gives the reader control over the size of the text and photos, if a closer look is desired. The reader can order a CD by mail, or an Immediate Digital download from my website Sedona Straw Bale – a Photo Journal.”
