Why order books and videos direct from Earthwood? 

1. Rob Roy’s books are signed by the author. Big deal. But see next item.
2. Roy’s Essential Cordwood Building (new), Earth-Sheltered Houses, and Timber Framing books are the textbooks for our workshops. If you purchase them from Earthwood – we know, because they are signed – and then decide to take a workshop, you get a full deduction of the book cost from your registration.
3. You help support small business instead of big business … so that we can stay in business!
