Lloyd Kahn has written over a dozen books on shelter and the construction of homes in various environments and cultures, and has been dealing with the concept of home since the 1960s.  His book Shelter served as a bible to those moving to the country in the 60s and 70s looking to create their own homesteads, and Shelter not only sheds a detailed light on the various ways to construct a house, but also differing interpretations of home all over the world.  My dear friend Jason Sussberg made a short documentary on Lloyd, and it stands as a fascinating portrait of a man who still believes in the integrity of constructing & creating things yourself, with your own two hands.
