Adobe is one of the oldest building materials in use. It is basically just dirt that has been moistened with water, sometimes with chopped straw or other fibers added for strength, and then allowed to dry in the desired shape. Commonly adobe is shaped into uniform blocks that can be stacked like bricks to form walls, but it can also be simply piled up over time to create a structure. The best adobe soil will have between 15% and 30% clay in it to bind the material together, with the rest being mostly sand or larger aggregate

Reviews about The owner-built adobe house (7):

I like this book. I have to say that within scanning a few different parts of the book I already learned some things I didn't know. Yeah, I know, you get surprises when you actually take the time to read something properly. But seriously, it's a very informative book and I would definitely recommend it to someone who is interested in learning about this. The author really does take you through the steps and talks about many things that needed to be considered. He even covered how to make your bricks to be able to stand up to wet weather with no damage. Do yourself a favor and get this book. Honestly I would buy it in conjunction with adobe houses for today and the adobe book, of if you don't like those combine it with two you do like. It will be worth it.

Not that informative or helpful.

If you are going to build you own adobe home, this is a great book for the first time adobe builder.
Had details on all aspects of the house. From electrical to pouring bricks to septic. Details as in the formula for a perk test, and footing sizes for load weights.
I have a lot of adobe books, this is second "good" one I have seen.
Very good.
Ydely
Practical information. Must read for anyone wanting to build adobe.
Dark_Sun
Great book. It has excellent drawings and photographs. It is a good basic manual for adobe building.
Fato
This book tries to cover every aspect of building a house instead of focusing on the details that are particular to building with adobe. I would have prefered the author refer me to other books and reference material for surveying, electrical, plumbing, etc. It is impossible for anyone to do a thorough coverage of all aspects of building so why try.
Jozrone
good book for the beginner, but very little in the book for those in need of advanced adobe info.
