About the Author

Nicknamed the Indiana Jones of Builders, John Finton is the go-to guy in luxury residential building, having traveled through over 80 countries, in some 25 years, sourcing the planet’s most unusual and rare materials for his uber-luxurious homes. Working with high-profile clients such as Simon Cowell, Jennifer Lopez, Dustin Hoffman, Maria Shriver, Mark Wahlberg and countless captains of industry, he describes his work as “building art through construction”. This love of building and global sourcing was what inspired this, his first book, in which readers stand to gain an insider’s look into some of Southern California’s most prominent addresses. John Finton is a recipient of Teen Line’s ‘Above and Beyond’ Award and has been a national spokesperson for Bank of America’s Building Green effort. John currently resides in Pasadena, California with his wife and three children.

What an amazing collection of unique and tastefully built homes. These residences are truly works of art. John's story is heartfelt and should inspire anyone who aspires to the highest levels of their profession and passion.

This is a gorgeous book with beautiful photographs. The images are inspiring and really take you there. I love that we see many different architects and interior designers points of view. The art in the homes is incredible to see It is really well done with an interesting introduction as well. A must have.

A lovely indulgent book with gorgeous photos. I would have liked more detail on each project (but as an Interior Designer I would wouldn't I?) but I keep returning to it and discover new things every time. A really lovely book to give as a gift - either to someone else or a treat for yourself. My only complaint? You come to the end too soon.

We recently purchased over 20 acres in the resort community of Lake Chelan, Washington (think Lake Como beauty), and purchased this book for inspiration. We found multiple examples of our vision and actually gave this beautifully illustrated book to our architect to use in the design process. Would love to convince John Finton to build our resort home/compound ... Magnificent works of art!
