Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Though seemingly stout and permanent, houses are malleable, able to flex, stretch, shift, and even shrink. Remodeling can enliven all the spaces in a home, solving flaws, enhancing interior livability, increasing curb appeal, and making best use of the site. In some cases, an addition is needed, while in others merely changing the floor plan permits a rediscovery of space. In House Transformed, architect Matt Schoenherr shares insight gained through an architectural practice specializing in renovation work. The 20 projects in this portfolio offer homeowners clever, workable ideas and answers, from connecting new and old parts of a house to gaining needed space through clever storage solutions. Not only has every home in the book undergone a remarkable renovation, but each features great moves, small moves, and simple transformations that are easily applied to any home. This book also features radical before and after photos of beautifully transformed homes and provides a handy blueprint for design decisions.
