Dust jacket is a bit tattered but complete and price has not been clipped. Small chunk missing from top. This book covers the entire perspective of problems involved and the advantages of using adobe construction. It is the result of the research the author did to put together a book for benefit of other would-be builders, because so little material about adobes was available. More than 110 illustrations are of particular benefit regarding ways that many persons have adapted the adobe construction to their needs. These illustrations alone form an idea-book of priceless value. But in the text the author with direct practicality takes the would-be builder step by step, from an over-all view of the problems, to financial matters in detail, selection of land and constructor, to the building process and the landscaping to go with it. Many tips are given for the do-it-your-self builder, and the plant list is filled with excellent suggestions for the selection of plants to compliment the finished house. Contents in Seven Chapters: Introduction, So You Want to Build an Adobe, What Can You Spend, Where Will You Put It, How Do You Plan to Get Your Money's Worth, Who Is Going to Build It, Where Are You Going to Get All That Money, and How Can You Do It Yourself. Plus List of Helpful Publications, and How Does Your Garden Grow, and Plant List.
