Description

Marianne Cusato, creator of the award-winning 308 square foot Katrina Cottages (built in response to hurricane Katrina), has authored and illustrated this definitive guide to what makes houses look and feel right - to the eye and to the soul. She teaches us the language and grammar of classical architecture, revealing how balance, harmony, and detail all contribute to creating a home that will be loved rather than tolerated. And she takes us through the do's and don'ts of every element of home design, from dormers to doorways to columns.
