Praise

“A practical, philosophical, conscientious, and richly generous version of what it takes to put together a thoughtful house, a thoughtful life.”
—Louise Erdrich

“Richard Manning set out to build an aesthetically pleasing and environmentally responsible house in which to center his life with his new wife. A Good House is his story of the work, thick with information, splendidly told, solid and good like his house, and a fine read.”
—William Kittredge

“An honest and winning, even profound little book. Even if you have never taken a hammer, utility knife and square in hand to install drywall … there is much to enjoy and learn from here.”
The Washington Post Book World
