excellent choices of homes to illustrate the traditions in California architecture. Concise reviews of each home with superb photographs. This is a great book to supplement all other texts on California's special houses. It is definitely one I will use to reference many times over.

This book provides inspiration for my new home. The books contains photographs of homes that have been rescued from neglect, and serves as an inspiration for those of us who allow homes to speak to us.

Although my home is not as grand as many of those pictured, we love watching the transformation from 80's ranch (with some rather odd renovations and add-ons) to our dream home.

The book is kept open, on our entry table.

This book is a superb documentation of California architecture from the early adobes to the Spanish Colonial revivals of the 1920's and 30's. It illustrates how these houses adapt to our modern way of life and can still retain their original charm and details. Each home is beautifully furnished and accessorized with taste that compliments the style of the house. The author did a wonderful job of selecting an interesting group of homes that exemplify the differnt periods throughout the years. The photographs are magnificent and each one is a joy to view.

Dated, the one great picture must be the cover. Wouldn't recomend buying, go to the library, you might only want to look at it once.
