About this title

Synopsis:

Designing Your Perfect House:Lessons from an Architect is the ideal guidebook for navigating the often mystifying process of house design and building. It's full of sage advice from a master architect about how to design the perfect house for you.Presented in twelve understandable lessons, this book moves from wonderful concepts to a finished dream home. Beginning with an exploration of the philosophy of design, the grammar of architecture, the creation of space, and discussions of how to make spaces be appropriate and gratifying for the people living in them, the lessons explore issues of scale, daylight, how to make a house feel like a home, unifying a design, flow, and proportions.This book answers questions like: How do I get started? How do I select a building site? What kind of house can I afford with my budget? How do I make my dream house just right for me?Other topics include: site analysis and selection, programming, schematic design, style, room relationships, budget, working with professionals, methods of contracting, and more.Numerous color photos and drawings illustrate the book's major points

From the Author:

As an architect, my job is not to impose a vision of what a house should be, instead, the architect is there to realize the client's unique vision.  The consumer needs an advocate in the creative and building process, and the architect's role is to advocate the customer's desires and balance those with the realities of time, money, and energy. I hope that when you read this book, it will help you with the complex issues involved with residential design and construction.  If you are remodeling, or just have an interest in home design, I expect that you will be able to find things of interest as well.  Please let me know what you think!
