Stoneview is an octagonal cordwood masonry timber-framed guesthouse with a living roof, located at Earthwood. It cost $5000 to build, complete, about $16/SF for its 320 SF of area. Over 130 clear line drawings and step-by-step images detail all the information needed to build Stoneview from start to finish, and a full-color section shows off the beautiful design features of this charming “green” cabin. All design considerations are covered, as well as a thorough discussion of octagon geometry. Chapters are devoted to site prep, forming and pouring the slab, timber framing, the light-weight living roof, and the cordwood masonry walls. Instructions for the interior slate & concrete floor are included, as well as a basic plumbing system featuring Joe Jenkins’ “humanure” composting system. Stoneview concludes with a performance evaluation of the building and a complete costing analysis. You don’t need any of my other books to build Stoneview. And the building, which could also serve as a studio, office, or workshop, is appropriate for any climate. 244 pages, four in full color.
