Drawing on 15 years' experience as a nationally known author and residential architect, Wedlick identifies hundreds of examples of quality house parts--from doors, windows, and roofing to dormers, columns, and fireplaces. He invites readers to look at their homes in a whole new light.
A good home is the result of good house parts--a certain window, a special door, a punched dormer, a romantic overlook-that are put together based on a homeowner's personal vision. A great home is filled with details that express the personality of the owners. It is comfortable to live in because the elements are perfectly suited to a particular lifestyle. Filled with examples of details that will transform a house, "Good House Parts" is the first book to present these parts as the building blocks for great design.
