Plattsburgh Pipeline was created with the intent to be a community based website, for it to work community needs to involved and bands are a part of our community. If you are in a band or if you know a band that would like to participate in this project contact for more information.

Besides combining all of the material from our two cordwood masonry videos, The Complete Cordwood DVD with Rob and Jaki Roy has plenty of new material, including the use of paper-enhanced mortar with Jim Juczak, the 16-sided post-and-beam frame (a good way to build a round cordwood home under cover), and the use of commercial cement retarders.An extensive captioned slideshow rounds out the DVD, showing examples of round, post-and-beam and stackwall buildings, as well as construction details and special features. 205 minutes."*Buy New At OR At Corner-Stone Bookstore Plattsburgh-Downtown

Mortgage Free! Radical Strategies for Home Ownership...Rob Roy

This is a banker's worst nightmare - a book that tells you how to live without being financially enslaved for the best years of your life. (The word mortgage comes from the old French meaning 'death pledge!')
While not a building book, Mortgage Free! is full of radical (but workable) strategies that enable you to own your own home. Raising the grubstake, finding and buying the land at the best possible price, the temporary shelter strategy, designing a low-cost home... these are just some of the important topics covered. In this book, I tell how Jaki and I have managed to own five different homes, all mortgage-free, and there are six other case studies from all over North America which show how others have accomplished the same thing. People who have read all my books say that this is the best and the most important. It's probably the one which will do you the most financial good, no matter what kind of house you decide to build. About 100 photos and illustrations, including 24 by Malcolm Wells. Click here to read selected excerpts from the book! "

The Sauna... Rob Roy

"I've completely rewritten my 1996 sauna book, added two new chapters (Siting and Design and Building a Conventional Sauna), and, now, over 90% of the 160+ pictures are in color. (None in the former edition.) Sorry about the price increase, but I think you'll find it's worth it. It's a much bigger full-color book.
Here's what Chelsea Green Publishers says about the new edition: 'The Sauna, now revised and expanded, contains everything you ever wanted to know about the famous Finnish bath. Rob Roy shares his infectious enthusiasm for the sauna and provides a complete, detailed guide to sauna building, along with resources for equipment and supplies. The Sauna is replete with history, tradition, health benefits, and instructions for proper use and maintenance, as well as step-by-step instructions for building a variety of cordwood masonry saunas and, new to this edition, conventionally framed saunas. The beautiful color photographs, also new to this edition, will inspire you to create your own sauna haven. Rob Roy is the author of twelve books, including Stone Circles and Mortgage-FREE! With his wife Jaki, he founded the Earthwood Building School, where they teach cordwood masonry construction, timber framing, earth-sheltered housing, and stone circle building.'"
