For Anyone Wanting More than a Suntan (Spiral-bound)

A manual, written with the adventurous DIY homeowner in mind.Published and recently revised by the Canadian non-profit Solar Nova Scotia, the manual focuses on the process of building a solar house from start to finish, but also includes information on integrating solar energy as part of a retrofit.

Unlike other manuals which may skip the basics in favor of technical know-how, the manual starts on the right foot by covering the fundamentals of actual design. Essential topics - from analyzing your site's potential for solar gain, to how orientation, prevailing winds, trees and slopes may shape your design, to organizing spaces in a "solar pattern" to maximize passive solar gain - are clearly explained and illustrated, which will prove helpful to homeowners who are not sure where to start.
