A good home is the result of good house parts--a certain window, a special door, a punched dormer, a romantic overlook-that are put together based on a homeowner's personal vision. A great home is filled with details that express the personality of the owners. It is comfortable to live in because the elements are perfectly suited to a particular lifestyle. Filled with examples of details that will transform a house, "Good House Parts" is the first book to present these parts as the building blocks for great design.

About the Author:

In 1998 The New York Times declared Dennis Wedlick a "rising star in architecture." This rise has continued with the growing success of his firm, Dennis Wedlick Architect LLC, (www.denniswedlick.com). Known for creating striking, sustainable homes and buildings, the firm has received national recognition from the media and the design community. The author of The Good Home, Designing the Good Home, and Good House Parts, Wedlick also lectures around the country on subjects ranging from specific architectural styles to sustainable design.

Review:

""Good House Parts is a clear, thoughtful, accessible, and understandable introduction to the ideas and principles that make the houses celebrated in the book so livable and sensible."
