  • My local library has a copy of Rob Roy's previous cordwood book. It is almost always checked out, and everyone I know uses it as the cordwood bible.

    This book, for be has been just that. I am in the process of planning my cordwood bath house, ad everytime I find myself wondering about a step in the process or seeking a reasoning, I simply turn to this book. Every time I have a question, it has an answer! Also, it has lots of pictures which are particulaly helpful for someone as visually oriented as I am.

  • This book is a great read. Enjoyable and yet it seems to give plenty of info on the different aspects of the cordwood building process. More than half way through I found out that there was a glossary in the back which helps explain some of the terminology. I would highly recommend this book for anyone thinking of building a cordwood home. This book will give you most of the know-how to build it and most importantly it will help you decide if you do want to build cordwood. It worked for me. My wife and I are presently saving up to build a cordwood home. I think it would be a good idea to watch the "Complete Cordwood DVD" before actually building.

  • I'm from Germany and cordwoord buildings are uncommon here. Horizontal log homes are booming but as expensive as ordinary home building not a choice for people without a lot of money.
    So cordwood may be a solution if we can get a permission with our restrictive rules and regulations here.

    The book provides the builder with every detail he must know, it's really great.
    For getting some practice we will start building a small shed with cordwood. ;-)

  • Very well done. Even better than previous book by Rob Roy

  • Fast shipping. Item as described.

  • I am grateful to find a great, highly recommended book on cordwood building that has the answers to most of my questions about this type construction. The illustrations are good and the information is invaluable.

  • A very well done book with perspectives from many different people.

  • A multitude of building designs and ideas with concise details for construction. Nice photos. Good historical survey of the cordwood building.
