Every new house begins with a dream—and a home plan. But it can be terrifying to commit a lifetime of savings to a two-dimensional drawing that’s difficult to interpret and visualize. Will the space meet your needs? Is the plan well-designed? Will it really turn out to be your dream house, or is it a potential nightmare?
“Clear and practical advice from a veteran designer. If you’re building from a stock plan, this book could save you from a lot of mistakes.” – Kevin Ireton, editor, Fine Homebuilding
“Like a Consumer’s Guide for electronics, this book gets ‘under the hood’ of what makes a space into a workable, functional, happy house, translating arcane architectural language into everyday language. Not just for house plans — anyone who is looking to buy a home, and to shape the where and the way of how they live, needs to own this book.” Melanie Taylor, Melanie Taylor Architecture & Gardens LLC
