Enjoyable book still doesn't answer the termite question. 6. September 2014

This book tells about the author's lifetime adventure in building, living in and maintaining a thatched roof cordwood/cob roundhouse. Although his house bears superficial resemblance to reconstructed neolithic homes it is very different in both design and use of materials. One of the basic differences is the aesthetically pleasing "Navajo style 'whirling logs'" roofing. This style roof support resembles some Tibetan yurt roof designs but uses more massive logs.

The only thing lacking, which I presume he'll get to when the late 1990s termite invasion from Devon finally gets to his town, is what to do about these little wood-eating critters. This single omission in a world where governments have banned effective persistent insecticide ground treatments makes it imprudent for readers living in termite zones to follow his designs.

On the other hand, readers who live at high altitudes or north of the termite zones would find a project such as this home to be both rewarding and challenging. More southern readers could conceivably modify the designs using solid foundations and available wood treatment methods to get something which looks pretty good but wouldn't have the intrinsic strength of a design with posts implanted in holes.

I really like both the content and writing style of this book. I'd read a previous edition some years ago and I see that both have improved in this fourth edition.

Wrench gives an engaging, personable discussion of the building of a wonderful traditional roundhouse with mostly modest resources in moist and thoroughly wooded rural Britain. His design uses a traditional roof with wooden beams that would use quite a bit of wood and a fair amount of expertise. In their proper places, such have been the best of human habitation for at least several thousand years.
