    DescriptionNew, practical paperback edition of the landmark design manifesto from the UK's favourite design guru. In this inspirational yet also practical paperback Kevin explores all areas of domestic living, from materialism to sustainability, craftsmanship to comfort. Kevin's beautifully written text brings insight and understanding to enjoying life in the 21st century, but crucially he offers detailed, helpful and incisive advice on design, construction and style. Kevin addresses very real and solvable domestic issues: What is the perfect kitchen layout? How to create a feeling of space in traditionally sized rooms? How to create an extension that works? How best to choose colour for function? What to use for insulation? How to shop for second hand? And how best to manage home waste and recycling? An inspiring but always usable book from the foremost voice in modern architectural design.

    'A landmark piece of interiors publishing...an inspiring but always usable book from the foremost voice in modern architectural design'. - Henley Standard 'Both inspirational and practical, each of the 43 principles addresses very real domestic issues' - Guernsey Now Quotes on Kevin 'a serious man of taste and integrity' The Observer 'like most television naturals, Kevin McCloud has an unmediated quality which comes across as effortless... (the) David Attenborough of the building site' The Guardian 'passionate; knowledgeable; eloquent and basically everything that most TV presenters are not' The Independent 'Kevin McCloud can enthuse over a simple joist like no one else. This is a man who actually enjoys watching concrete dry... his enthusiasm is so infectious' The Observer
