    Book details

From one of Fine Homebuilding s best-loved authors, Larry Haun, comes a unique story that looks at American home building from the perspective of twelve houses he has known intimately. Part memoir, part cultural history, A Carpenter s Life as Told by Houses takes the listener house by house over an arc of 100 years. We learn about the sod house in Nebraska where his mother was born, the frame house of his childhood, the production houses he built in the San Fernando Valley and the Habitat for Humanity homes he devotes his time to now. It s an engaging listen from a veteran builder with a thoughtful awareness of what was intrinsic to home building in the past and the many ways it has evolved. Builders and history lovers will appreciate his deep connection to the natural world, yearning for simplicity, respect for humanity and evocative notion of what we mean by home.
