Adobe Homes for All Climates

Simple, Affordable, and Earthquake-Resistant Natural Building Techniques

by Lisa Schroder, Vince Ogletree


"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

"Adobe has always been thought of as a material for the hot, arid parts of the world. 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

"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
