For the typical American homeowner, "Great Houses on a Budget" presents case studies from across the country that achieve high style at an affordable cost. Most homeowners can only fantasize about owning and living in beautiful dream homes designed by top architects--houses that are well beyond the reach of average consumers. This splendidly illustrated volume promises to provide a reality check by presenting beautifully designed houses by the same architects, but with one exception. The houses in this book were designed and built for clients with high standards, as well as modest budgets. Fifteen in-depth case studies display the work of some of today's finest architects in locations ranging from California and Connecticut, to Virginia and Oregon. Each project includes lavish photography accompanied by detailed discussion of the economical construction techniques implemented in each house. With an in-depth look at square footage costs, design techniques, and low-cost building materials, "Great Houses on a Budget" will provide readers with everything they need to plan a great home on even the smallest budget.
