Críticas:

"Much admired for the adobe homes she has built in the Southwest, Lisa Schroder gives a thorough description in "Adobe Homes for all Climates" of the techniques of adobe construction in the United States. . . and guides the eager builder in great detail through the intricacies of earth construction. As we mud freaks know, earth architecture is eminently the solution for the future."--Simone Swan, designer/builder and founder of the Adobe Alliance "With "Adobe Homes for all Climates", [Schroder and Ogletree] offer a fresh, modern voice to the lively revival of earthen building, and provide a wealth of practical detail as well. People who are considering building with earth-or just wondering why we would want to get back into them-would do well to consult this book."--Bruce King, director, Ecological Building Network, from the Foreword -With Adobe Homes for all Climates, [Schroder and Ogletree] offer a fresh, modern voice to the lively revival of earthen building, and provide a wealth of practical detail as well.

Now Lisa and Vince show us how to build with adobe in cold and wet climates, too. This is good news!"--Quentin Wilson, director, Adobe Construction Program, Northern New Mexico College

Reseña del editor:

The lay-up of adobe bricks is an easy, forgiving way to achieve a solid masonry-wall system. Contrary to stereotypes, adobe is perfectly adaptable for use in cold, wet climates as well as hot and dry ones, and for areas prone to earthquakes. With its efficient use of energy, natural resources for construction, and minimal effort for long-term maintenance, it's clear that the humble adobe brick is an ideal option for constructing eco-friendly structures throughout the world. The book is ideal both for first-time do-it-yourselfers and for experienced adobe builders seeking to improve their craft. Drawing on the experience of more than fifty major adobe projects since 1993, Adobe Homes for all Climates describes Adobe Building Systems' patented reinforcement and scaffolding systems, showing readers how to construct adobe homes more easily and safely, and with superior strength, durability, structural integrity and aesthetic appeal, as compared to earthen homes of the past. All aspects of adobe construction are covered, including making and laying adobe bricks, installing lintels and arches, conduits and pipes, doors and windows, top plates and bondbeams, ideal wall dimensions, adobe finishes, and other adobe construction components, such as the inexpensive use of scaffolding. These methods will produce a premium product that will meet and often exceed inspection standards. Equipped with this manual, you will be able to make adobe bricks swiftly, and confidently lay them up. You will be able to beautifully finish your adobe walls with earth plasters creating stunning colours and outstanding light effects and create a beautiful, energy-efficient home that will last for generations to come.
