   schema:reviewBody ""Cordwood Building collects over 25 of the world's best practitioners to describe the long history of the method, showing how to build a cordwood home using state of the art techniques such as double walls, Lomax corners, paper-enhanced mortars, and ways of creating round, hexagonal, and other building shapes. Cordwood buildings from all over the world are featured, including examples from Wales, Chile, and Sweden, and many from Canada and the U.S. With a special focus on building code issues, Cordwood Building outlines the "5-E" advantages of cordwood buildings: their Ease of construction; Economy; Esthetics; Energy-Efficiency; and Ecological harmony. Well-illustrated, the book will inspire designs and help owner-builders decide whether cordwood masonry is appropriate for their building plans. It will also appeal to contractors wanting to learn a new building technique, building code enforcement officers, and all those interested in natural buildings."--Jacket." ;
