The Integral Urban House: Self Reliant Living in the City is a comprehensive guide to achieving a completely sustainable urban lifestyle by creating a mini-ecosystem where residents grow their own fruits and vegetables, raise chickens, rabbits, and fish, recycle 90% of their waste, solar heat their hot water, and use a variety of other alternative technologies—all on a 1/8-acre city lot. Long considered the bible of urban homesteading, this book is the result of four years of living with and refining the systems of the Integral Urban House in Berkeley, California — a collaborative project which combined the collective skills of the members of the Farallones Institute to develop a center for creating and testing experimental, ecologically stable and resource-conserving living systems. With its vision of an intimate connection between the urban habitat and ecological principles The Integral Urban House will inspire and empower people to act within their own communities to create places where they can live more sustainably.

In today's world, when making home improvements, there is more to consider than simply changing the way your home looks or functions. Environmental issues should be part of every decision you make, from selecting fabric for soft furnishings to designing and siting a home extension. Eco House Book provides all the information you need to reduce your home's carbon footprint and directly improve your quality of life.

Most homes are not decorated, designed, constructed or serviced with eco-friendliness in mind. But you don't have to start again from scratch to make a huge difference in the impact your home has on the environment. We can do a great deal to convert our existing homes into greener, healthier places to live. Eco House Book explains how relatively small changes can be made (e.g., simple energy efficiency improvements, water saving tips) as well as more dramatic overhauls (such as redesigning room use, converting basements and extending your home).

Reducing the vast amounts of energy and water that homes consume on a daily basis receives special attention. You'll find advice on low-energy lighting strategies and decorative choices, improving insulation, the latest green heating systems, alternative ways of generating power, and electricity-reducing appliances.

Each book in the Back to Basics Series is designed and written to teach woodworkers core information they need to succeed in a clear and plainspoken manner. As the series' slogan puts it, "Your world is complicated enough, your woodworking information shouldn't be."

Cabinet Construction is the newest title in this popular series. Taking the confusion and complication out of learning to build furniture, the book introduces readers to basic carcase construction, teaches woodworkers to design boxes, and covers frame-and-panel construction. Next, the new woodworker gets all the basics on building doors, drawers and legs. Other basics perfect for the beginner include choosing the right lumber, joining boards, planing stock, ripping a work piece, and sanding.

Written with a straightforward approach, Cabinet Construction includes color photos as well as highly detailed illustrations and diagrams that help readers visualize each technique. It's perfect for both the beginner who doesn't want to get bogged down with too much information and the experienced craftsman who needs a handy reference tool to keep on hand.

Other books tell us how to live the good life … but you might have to win the lottery to do it. Making Home is about improving life with the real people around us and the resources we already have. While encouraging us to be more resilient in the face of hard times, author Sharon Astyk also points out the beauty, grace and elegance that result, because getting the most out of everything we use is a way of transforming our lives into something much more fulfilling.

Written from the perspective of a family who has already made this transition, Making Home shows readers how to turn the challenge of living with less into settling for more: more happiness, more security and more peace of mind. Learn simple but effective strategies to:

  • Save money on everything from heating and cooling to refrigeration, laundry, water, sanitation, cooking and cleaning
  • Create a stronger, more resilient family
  • Preserve more for future generations

We must make fundamental changes to our way of life in the face of ongoing economic crises and energy depletion. Making Home takes the fear out of this prospect, and invites us to embrace a simpler, more abundant reality.
