Will Anderson's monthly features in The Independent have an enthusiastic following; readers are following his progress from finding a plot, getting planning permission and building himself a stunning contemporary eco home, which mirrors the fine-tuned ecology of a tree. Drawing on his columns in The Independent, Will has created a diary that will be invaluable to anyone contemplating building their own eco house.
The Diary of an Eco Builder focuses specifically on environmental issues through the story of his attempt to realise an inspiring and challenging vision. Honest, amusing and unexpected, it highlights all the key issues which arise when you build an eco house, records the process of the nitty gritty of self build, and provides contacts and references for more information.
The Energy Saving Trust is using Will's house as a case study and will monitor and evaluate the house to learn from the way it performs.
