Groundhouse Build + Cook is written by Daren Howarth and Adi Nortje, with a foreword by Kevin McCloud.
A totally unique book. 124 pages long, half of which is given over to the beautiful images from building and living in the Groundhouse. This highly illustrated ‘how to’ book is designed to inspire, showing the essence of what needs to be done to create an ecohome based on earthship biotecture – as simply as possible with the minimum of technical jargon.
It’s a flip book as well. With half the book an original collection of the 30 best recipes, inspired by the people who joined us and cooked with us in Brittany.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT THE BOOK
a much-needed synthesis of home and lifestyle, of house and garden and a reminder of how we all could be living with reduced dependency… Kevin McCloud
A true ‘work of heart’. Groundhouse’ covers the building of one extraordinary house…celebrating the food that fuelled the construction process as much as the house itself…lovingly assembled…this is a book which is delicious in every sense” Rob Hopkins
Informative and inspirational…I love the concept of this book – recipes. Recipes for building your own home and recipes for eating from the land around it… Oliver Heath
Groundhouse doesn’t aim to be a detailed ‘how to build’ manual, but shows main steps and inspires to make it feel doable. That’s (some of) the beauty of the book: both the build notes and cooking recipes inspire, not dictate as they move through the seasons…the recipes are simple to follow, wholesome and delicious. The other beauty of the book is the photos and graphics!… Don McLean
