I hope to have a house some day, and my main criteria is that it have a front porch. So many houses do not have porches nowadays. This book shows before and after photos of houses that were greatly improved by the addition of a porch or covered entryway. More than this, it focuses on style elements and details of different architectural styles, such as Colonial, Farmhouse, Victorian, etc. The book emphasizes staying true to the architectural style of the home, or to the look for the home that you are trying to achieve. There is also good information on building materials and practices.
As a student in Architectural Computer Aided design, I am very happy to have it now in my reference library. I would like to be involved with home renovations someday and will look to this book for tips and inspiration. By the title and cover picture, one might think it is just another how-to book, or some light decorating ideas book. It is really much more than that.
I really like this book!
