About this title

Synopsis:

A beautiful and inspiring display of humdrum houses across America reborn as colorful one-of-a-kind homes

Many of today's young couples are trapped in a cookie-cutter "starter" house, ready to step up to something more spacious and reflective of their tastes but unable to afford it. Suburban Renewal reveals how--with an architect's help--they can remodel a ranch, reshape a cape, or rebuild a builder's colonial for far less than the cost of a new house. Its before-and-after photographs and instructive text show run-of-the-mill houses without a whiff of individuality transformed into unique dwellings with the personalized ambience of every householder's dreams.

About the Author:

Tom Connor writes about houses and home design for The New York Times "Home,""Real Estate,"and "Magazine"sections, and for other publications including House and Garden and Connecticut Magazine. He lives in Southport, Connecticut.
