Designing Wood Heated Homes

Sample Pages & Reviews

"I have been reading architects since my undergrad years three decades ago, for both work and study, usually under duress. As writers, most architects are about as compelling as a pre-fab vinyl house. John Silverio is a rare exception--an architect who really writes well, and has something important to say. His latest book, about designing and living in wood-heated homes, comes from his own long experience doing just that in Maine. He begins by describing why wood heat should be embraced, then explains, in simple and elegant language, how a home can be optimized for the hearth. His examples and advice are specific, his argument convincing, his illustrations clear and instructive. This book will inspire anyone interested in heating with wood, whether to save money, live self-sufficiently or experience the simple joy and comfort of a crackling fire." - Amazon reviewer
