The New Wood House|
by James Grayson Trulove (Author)
The first book in an attractive and informative new series that focuses on
innovative architectural design and the primary materials in your home. The New
Wood House features projects from prominent and emerging architects with designs
both classic and cutting-edge, most of which have not been previously published.
The book is heavily visual and filled with gorgeous photographs, as well as
floor plans and elevations. The text is an accessible discussion of the benefits
and challenges of the materials used, the design goals, and the context in which
each house is built. More inspirational than how-to, THE NEW WOOD HOUSE is an
indispensable and innovative guide for anyone building, renovating, or updating
a home. A resources section at the back of the book describes the types of woods
and finishes selected for each project.
