The natural building movement aims to change the paradigm of how homes are currently built, from expensive, toxic, resource-intensive boxes to elegant, affordable, healthy homes that make sense for the planet and us.

 -  Conrad Rogue          

When I was first getting started in Natural Building there were several books that were instrumental in my pursuit of knowledge in the field: The Hand Sculpted House, Shelter, and A Pattern Language were a few of them. Each inspired me to learn and do more and transformed how I saw homes and building in general.

Conrad Rogue’s new natural building book, My House of Earth (self-published, 172 pages) is another foundational work that is sure to inspire, inform, and propel the next generation of natural builders. It is a comprehensive work with a companion website chock full of pictures and videos from which both novice and experienced builders will benefit.
