Handmade Houses A Guide to the Woodbutcher's Art by Art Boericke

$89

About

Handmade Houses: A Guide to the Woodbutcher's Art by Art Boericke. Scrimshaw Press, California, 1973. 3rd printing hardcover with dust jacket. The book is a photo-journey through the 1970s and documents some of the unusual homes that were constructed during that decade. The pictures include both the interior and exterior of the homes. The handmade houses pictured and described in this book are exactly that - handmade. They reflect the free spirit of the people who built and lived in them. All of the homes were built with love and the material that was used was either worked by hand using hand tools and all-wood joints or was salvaged from other buildings that were being taken down. Many of the buildings include mismatched doors, windows, and other fixtures that give them a very artsy and eclectic look while the use of tree branches, metal sculpting, and unusual plumbing and lighting add to the overall feel of the buildings themselves. This is a hard to find book.
