Building on the enormous success of his book "Shelter, Lloyd Kahn continues his odyssey of finding and exploring the most magnificent and unusual hand-built houses in existence. Among the intriguing domiciles described in "Homework are a Japanese-styles stilt house accessible only by taking a cable across a river; a stone house in a South African valley whose roof serves as a baboon trampoline; multilevel treehouses on the South China Sea; and a bottle house in the Nevada desert. Over 1,500 photos illustrate various innovative architectural styles and natural building materials that have gained popularity in the last two decades such as cob, papercrete, bamboo, strawbale, timber framing and earthbags.
