4.0 out of 5 stars 'Inspired House' Inspiring
'Inspired House' introduces you to the owners, architect and builder of the featured homes, giving insight into the ideas behind design and building decisions. Good look at how your house could move from vision to concept to reality. The houses here seem more livable, more affordable (for the most part) than some in similar books.

2.0 out of 5 stars Well written, no real information

This review is from: Creating the Inspired House: Discovering Your Place Called Home (Hardcover)
'Inspired House' introduces you to the owners, architect and builder of the featured homes, giving insight into the ideas behind design and building decisions. Good look at how your house could move from vision to concept to reality. The houses here seem more livable, more affordable (for the most part) than some in similar books. If you're hoping for nuts-and-bolts costs and dimensions, this book will leave you mildly disappointed. But the lovely, practical homes are well worth looking to for inspiration, and that, after all, is what was promised. A wonderful book that actually did inspire and fill out many details of our current "if we build" home.

Not recommended.

A broad coverage of designs. A little flashy and cold. Lots of photos illustrating ideas and floor plans.
