The Alternative Building SOURCEBOOK
For Traditional, Natural, and Sustainable Building Products
we publish information about a building product made of natural or renewable
resources, we're inundated with calls for more information. In an effort
to make things easier for everyone, we've published a sourcebook of building
products, companies and schools dedicated to the concept of natural, traditional
and sustainable building. In order to make this a comprehensive resource,
we included products, publications, natural home designers, builders and
architects, schools, researchers and much more. Now you can have it at
your fingertips... So throw away your rolodex.
