The authors built their home together in 2006. Married for over forty years, counselors for over 25, they discovered first hand how challenging the home construction process is. Based on their own experience, they developed this workbook to assist other couples and home builders develop more effective ways to work together.Review:
"This book is an invaluable tool for assisting our client couples to move smoothly through the decision-making process, keeping construction on schedule while maintaining their relationship. I recommend this book for all custom home builders and their clients." --Tim Alexander: President, HomeSource R.E. and Construction, Inc
"This is one of those rare and inspired books that make the daunting undertaking of a couple building a home together without demolishing their relationship seem really do-able. Poignant, easy-to-read and accessible, the Massanari's glean from their experiences of over 25 years as psychotherapists as well as thriving survivors of designing and building their own home. They offer helpful insights, practical exercises and alternative approaches to avoid the pitfalls of what is often described at best as a "tolerable, but we'll never do this again"; and at worst, "sure we have a new house, but our relationship is in rubbles endeavor." This is a must read for all couples who even have a glint in their eye for building a home together." --Cheri Brackett, MA, LPC
