Building a Cool House... is hot!

Building a Cool House for Hot Times without Scorching the Pocketbook is now #5 on this Barnes & Noble list: Barnes & Noble.com Books - Architecture, Domestic->Amateurs' manuals

It was Reviewer's Choice in the February 2005 Small Press Bookwatch (Midwest Book Review): MBR: Small Press Bookwatch, February 2005

Here's the review:

In Building A Cool House For Hot Times Without Scorching The Pocketbook, author Joy Smith draws upon her on-site personal experience with the building process involved in constructing her own home. This slender, 61-page book reveals what she learned about the thousands of decisions that must be made in order to build within a budget as illustrated by diary excepts, photos, and more. A chronological compendium of events and practical advice from planning, to "punch list", Building A Cool House For Hot Times Without Scorching The Pocketbook will prove an invaluable read for anyone contemplating building (or remodeling) their own home.
