Books on adobe construction

Designing the space | Construction, materials

Designing the space

The first of these books is a classic and still in print. The other two may be harder to find. I recommend them because they make you look at your built environment: how it's used or could be used, how to get the space you need at a price you can afford and how to be very comfortable living/working in the finished building.
