A Place of My Own

Category: Books January 20th, 2010 by mbc

For anyone with an interest in building, conversion or renovation, or in just getting your hands dirty, Michael Pollans ‘A Place of My Own’ is a great opportunity for some self reflection through Pollans written account of his own experiences in constructing ‘a room of  [his] own making‘.


The book is an insightful, introspective diary of experiences in building a writing hut (a shed with a desk in it) in the woods behind the New England home of the author.

Pollans style is chatty and assured. His journey from hopeless sub-DIYer to trainee craftsman gives hope to us all, even those of us with two left thumbs.

This is a book for the interested, if this sounds like a journey you yourself would like to take then it’s thoroughly recommended, otherwise you may find it deadly dull.
