Groundhouse Build and Cook
Daren Howarth & Adi Nortje
Readers familiar with the Grand Designs TV programme may remember a popular episode featuring an ‘earthship’ ecobuild in Brittany, France, which the owners, Daren and Adi, called the Groundhouse.
Now, in a unique book, they have combined information on the build with the best recipes inspired by the people who joined them and cooked with them during construction.
With a foreword by Kevin McCloud this ‘how to’ book is highly illustrated with beautiful graphics crafted from the thousands of images taken during building and living in the Groundhouse.
Designed to inspire, the book shows what needs to be done to build a home aligned with nature in all three aspects of design: architecture, systems and materials.
