Clearly it is information that is the basis for making informed decisions and for becoming adept at designing an interesting and enjoyable home. At a minimum, by studying this book prospective homeowners should be able to avoid some of the pitfalls that can adversely affect their construction.Sprinkled in among the do’s, don’ts, caveats and guidance will be more than a few of my personal recommendations for home design. No doubt you will not agree with all of these suggestions. However this can still be a good thing since my ideas may act as food for thought. Not everyone should build the same home. After all, uniqueness is a virtue.The views presented in this book are just the tip of the iceberg. It would not be realistic to list every suggestion, admonition or tip that I might want to since some of them may have only limited or specific application. I suggest dealing directly with a home consultant, designer, architect or contractor for more personalized assistance.
