Rated 4 out of 5 by from House Ever thought of building a house from scratch. This book covers that topic from the point of view a couple and their dealings with the architect, contractor, builders and other family members. Along with ideas to consider when building a house, it goes into the character of the various individuals and the significance and personal touches they bring to this home under construction. From trust issues with the builder, to choice of wood and finishing touches, this book makes building a house a lively journey from groundbreaking to moving in.
