Book Review - The Woodland House by Ben Law

Ben Law's woodland home, voted 'Best Ever Build' on Channel 4's Grand Designs could not be a more environmentally friendly build, as presenter Kevin McCloud puts in his foreword, "this, in carbon terms, is an invisible house." This inspirational book documents the entire process from the initial idea through the design and construction and now has an added seven-year update, where we visit the home with jasmine and roses climbing up its weather-darkened cladding. It's a beautiful building which looks so natural, it's as if it grew there! A fascinating, heartwarming read which documents the entire build in scrupulous detail and gives a great insight into the experience.
