Carpenter's Life as Told by Houses, A Zusammenfassung

Carpenter's Life as Told by Houses, A L Haun

Part memoir, part cultural history, this is a book about the history of homebuilding in America over the past 100 years, told through twelve unique but modest houses that the author knows intimately. We follow the author from the sod house in Nebraska where his mother was born through the frame house where he spent his childhood to the production houses that he built one a day in the San Fernando Valley to the Habitat for Humanity houses that he has been devoting his time to most recently. While the houses provide the narrative glue, they are but part of the story. What emerges through the pages of A Carpenter's Life as Told by Houses is a passionate paean to the earth and those who walk upon it, written by a veteran builder with a deep connection to the natural world, a yearning for simplicity, a respect for humanity and an evocative notion of what we mean by home.

Über L Haun

Larry Haun began his building career on the Nebraska prairie, where at 17 he helped to build his first house. In 1951, he joined his older brother in a Los Angeles building boom that brought about rapid change in tools, materials and building methods. Retired now in Coos Bay, Ore., Haun builds houses for Habitat for Humanity and backpacks in the High Sierras, the Rockies and the Andes. He is the author of How to Build a House, with three companion videos on how to frame a house.
