Summary :

The story of an amateur builder and two novice apprentices and how they turned an overgrown blackberry patch, ten truckoads of lumber, a keg of cut nails and an antique staircase into a real home.

This isn't so much of a "how-to" more of a "why-do". You follow Hugh Howards build of a home for his family and the assorted pieces, influences, and people that contribute to the project. This is a very personal account, an enjoyable read, engagingly written with plenty of humour. Though there is a technical air to the book it never gets in the way, mentioning references more than instructions.
