About the Author

       Steve Rees and his wife Shirley have been involved in some kind of building or remodeling for most of their married lives – and even before that. They built this home from 2007 – 2008 and have had such an outpouring of interest in the design and concept that Steve decided that a book would help to spread the idea and the details of how to do it. Even in his profession as a Registered Nurse, Steve has always enjoyed teaching and the easy to read, informative instructions contained in this book will make it easy for anyone interested in this design and technique to be well on their way to realizing their dream of building their own unique home. Steve and Shirley travel extensively and have been exposed to a wide variety of designs and cultures, and feel that this architecture has much to offer a world that needs to reduce energy consumption and yet maintain a comfortable lifestyle.

      • It does take some money to get started. Depending on where you live land costs have to be considered for starters. You might think of a “Go Fund Me” campaign – lay out your vision clearly and detailed and how much it would cost and present it to the people and see if some would like to help. You never know what can happen!
