Where we choose to settle, how and what we build, and how our homes feel inside and out-all are reflections of who we are. The best houses are about people, and Creating the Inspired House is full of stories of memorable characters immersed in the discovery of a place they call home. With 300 color photographs, this book takes readers on walk-throughs of over 20 inspired homes across the country-large and small, new and remodeled-with the very homeowners, architects, and builders who collaborated on their creation. Each of the houses is shaped by the homeowners' personal passions, and it is those passions that breathe life into the design of their homes, creating an "inspired house." The inspirations for these houses are as varied as the people who live in them. In this collection of fascinating house stories, readers will find the encouragement to believe and act on their own personal dreams-and build accordingly.
