'Earthen Floors' by Sukita Reay Crimmel and James Thomson - Green Homes

Earthen Floors, a book all about installing and living with earth-based floor systems, is due out April 1, 2014. The first of its kind dedicated solely to the art of making inexpensive, durable, and beautiful floors made mostly of sand, clay, and fiber. There are a host of books that touch upon the topic of floors, but few that delve very deeply into the nitty gritty details. This will be a welcome addition to the natural building library.
