Designing an eco home is much more about working with your house's
place and situation than relying in intrusive technology and hi-tech materials. In this book, Christopher Day draws on his extensive
experience to explain the key principles of eco-home design, using
common-sense methods to create a pleasant, comfortable and healthy home.With beautifully simple hand-drawn illustrations, he takes you through: using the local topography, combined with landscaping, to improve your home's micro-climate, designing to keep your home dry and warm in the winter, and cool in the summer, minimizing hidden environmental impact, making the house safe and healthy, both emotionally and physically.
