Picked this badboy up at the flea market today and had to share it...
Many of these photos are already floating around the Internet, but having them all in one book is priceless... and there are so many more that I had never seen before!!
The author (Boericke) + photog (Shapiro) spent years traveling down many rural roads in order to record + capture these incredible owner-built homes. Beautifully inspiring for anyone looking to build their own earth-friendly dream space. 

I also highly reccomend the following:
Rolling Homes: Handmade Houses on Wheels ❖ Jane Lidz
Handmade Houses: A Century of Earth-Friendly Home Design ❖ Richard Olsen
Woodstock Handmade Houses ❖ Robert Haney + David Ballantine


  1. I can't tell you how many of these books are in my house. My dad is obsessed with building timber frame houses and tiny houses and sustainable houses and... it just never ends. I love it, there is so much inspiration from these wooden houses with a beautiful human touch to them.

  2. That third picture is so gorgeous. Wow, you always share the most inspirational photos.

  6. Eco wooden homes are easy to assemble with tongue and grooved technique. Very fast assembling concept. A eco wood house of 600 sq ft can be assembled in full, less than 7 days. Eco wood houses can be made with wooden platform also and it follows the timber wood home concept, i.e., no civil flooring is needed hence it can be more useful at beach houses, beach resorts or any CRZ areas.

  7. The Canadian spruce wood of kiln dried, heat treated planks are tongue and grooved in our factory and prefabricated in full at our factory itself, meaning that these wooden house is designed and built in a controlled manner with state of art technology, and then the wooden houses are transported in knocked down condition to the various building sites.
