About this title

Synopsis:

First published in 1980, this book remains a useful guide that will help you build your own adobe house almost anywhere in the country, even in areas not usually considered "adobe country." Duane Newcomb takes you through every step of the process, from selecting a site, obtaining building permits, drawing plans, excavating, and making bricks to adding kitchen cabinets and finishing the interior. The Owner-Built Adobe House details every aspect of various types of adobe houses and includes information on plumbing, electricity, heating and cooling, fireplaces, flooring, and the framing of windows, doors, and roofs.

With sixty-six detailed drawings and photographs accompanying the instructions, this book is the basic manual in the field and is invaluable to both the novice and expert homebuilder.

From the Inside Flap:

A useful guide that will help you build your own adobe house almost anywhere in the country, even in areas not usually considered "adobe country."
