Living Homes: Sustainable Architecture and Design by Suzi Moore McGregor and Nora Burba Trulsson

Much more than a beautiful coffee table book, Living Homes: Sustainable Architecture and Design is a well-written introduction to a trend in homebuilding worth following, especially considering the ever increasing need for sustainable living and desire for environmental harmony. The book is full of high-quality photographs taken by Terrence Moore framed by stories of the homeowners who graciously opened up to writers Suzi Moore McGregor and Nora Burba Trulsson.

  1. Also here in Finland, we will build straw-bale houses. A whole village for artisans and craftspersons.
    If you would like to see pictures and drawings from our project [partly Underground straw bale house],
    you find pdf-files in English and Finnish here:

    More rendered 3D-drawings and pics, a lot about building straw-bale houses and all kind of related stuff. We discuss here:

    Even if it is in Finnish, you will understand most of the 3D-drawings and what they are connected to.
    You can also comment in English, Russian, Chinese, Swedish, Norwegian or Arabic.
    It does not matter which of these languages.

    We are interested in all kind of international cooperation.
