Crafting the Considerate House chronicles the design and construction of a home that is remarkably energy efficient, affordable, and a pleasure to live in. The narrative puts you, as one reviewer has written, "on the front lines of building your dream green home, providing an in-the-flesh tour from foundation to finish with a kind guide at your side . . . this book will be as close as you can get to 30 years in the building trades without actually becoming David Gerstel."
You learn of the house's successes such as its $80 a year heating bills. You share in the author's reflections about how he might do better the next time out. Even as you enjoy the lively account, you find out just what it takes to build an appealing house that meets the financial and environmental challenges of the 21st century.
