This book review is unique in that we’re reviewing the first three volumes of a series of books being published by New Society Publishers called the Sustainable Building Essentials Series (SBES). At the time of publication of this article there will be a total of 16 books in the SBES covering everything from prefabricated straw bale construction to rainwater harvesting. New Society is going all out by commissioning the best and brightest in our industry to share their knowledge in an easy to understand and consistent format. This review will cover the first three publications within the SBES, which are:
Essential Hempcrete Construction
Essential Building Science
Essential Prefab Straw Bale Construction
At the time of publication, there appears to be two more books out as part of the SBES, which are:
Essential Light Straw Clay Construction
Essential Sustainable Home Design
I bought this book and i will recommend it to anybody interested to get a good insight on prefab straw walls.
