Item Description...
Designing Your Dream Home gives you every question to ask, every detail to consider, and everything to check out before you design and build your dream home. Designing and building a home can be stressful and expensive, but knowing what to consider ahead of time will save you stress, time, and money. Beginning with the questions to ask before you purchase land all the way through your final punch list, this guide addresses the entire process. With this step-by-step and room-by-room guide, the design process will come together in the most efficient way possible. Features include detailed checklists for every room, common mistakes to avoid, design details that pay big dividends, and unique "lifestyle questions" that reveal what you really need and want from your new home. Remodelers and renovators will also find value in these tips and suggestions. Also provided is such vital information as terms, symbols, abbreviations, measures, and dimensions that are often unfamiliar to the layperson.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Exceptional Documentation  Mar 17, 2010
This guide alone will enable us to be completely thorough when we build our next home regardless of whether we Owner-Build or contract with a builder. It contains very detailed criteria for each construction step with great tips and explanations.
Buy the paperback version  Jan 22, 2010
It helps me in many areas on my new home design. Buy a paperback version if you're serious about using to its full potential.
Useful workbook  Dec 2, 2009
At first I thought the book was a little heavy on the blank forms and checklists, but she covers the basics, and there are a number of useful illustrations that teach you what you need to know about what a house is made up of. Plus a glossary, architect's symbols that help you decipher your house's blueprints, measurement basics (very helpful), mistakes to avoid, and more. The forms and checklists require work, but they can prevent you from making some serious mistakes. (I'd advise looking at more than one house book, btw. I had a number of them--most of which I have since culled, but I still have a few to refer to.) I would also advise you to keep this book for your records. I bought house record books--The Home Owner's Journal: What I Did & When I Did It and The Home Owner's Diary: What Was Done and When We Did It. (For two different homes we built; these books became very cluttered with additional work and notes.) You will find these records essential in the future.
For any prospective home owner - especially owner-builders  Apr 27, 2009
This book is an excellent collection of very helpful design advice and checklists to design or remodel every room of your home. It focuses on "what you need to know" and "what you need to consider" for every phase of design or remodeling. It is to-the-point, with few wasted words. The checklists help you quick identify where you need to learn or do more without plowing through a dozen books on any one particular subject. Many checklists by room, type of space and situation. Interview guides for builders, architects, designers. Helpful tips and gottchas to avoid. You will find it can help you plan, organize and clarify your thinking, plus organize the mountains of information you find when you plan to build or perform a large remodel.
A 'Dream' book!  Apr 21, 2009
This book is incredible! A MUST HAVE for anyone thinking of building a home. It has suggestions I would have never thought of on my own.
