Not quite what I expected, could have used more specificity on floor plans, could have used more that would give advise on actual building

I have enjoyed this book thoroughly. It has lots of floor plans of cabins from micro sub 200 square feet structures up to ±1000 square feet, as well as general pointers about building. It does have some green building ideas as most of the plans are adaptable for off grid living. But that said, most of plans also lack other details necessary to make an off grid structure work (like a mechanical room to house batteries, etc.). I have taken this book for what it's worth: general outline floor plans to give basic ideas and design concepts. From there, if you wanted to build a cabin of your own, you'll have to take the ideas to a architect and get plans drawn up with more detail anyways. So, as a place to jumpstart from in the concept/design stage, this book is great. Plus it has a neat feel as it is published on recycled materials. For more green building ideas and techniques, I highly recommend you look into Earthship design, even for cabin-sized structures.

The designs are lousy. Drawn just to be drawn, I'd say. Take this as an example. Rectangular cabin. Entrance on a short side. At one end of the cabin the eating area, down a hall to the other end, there is the kitchen. Da. Too many cabins have contemporry looking roofs (ie just one slop) and look about them- I am not sure why I kept the book, perhaps to remind me not to buy these stupid books again.
