Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

These days, home is often the only place to relax, excape anxiety, and enjoy time with your family. It's no wonder more people are now spending more money and time on their home and its comforts.

Recognizing this trend, author Jim Tolpin asked some of the country's top residential architects for examples of homes designed specifically with families in mind. You'll find homes here for traditional, single-parent, blended, and extended families. You'll find layouts that are flexible and rooms that can adapt to different uses over time as the family's needs change. There are inspiring color photographs and floor plans for 25 different homes.

Book News Annotation:

The fifth volume of The Essentials of Woodworking series collects 29 articles originally published in the pages of Fine Woodworking magazine. Heavily illustrated with photographs and drawings, the articles cover specific techniques for aspects of working with tables, drawers, boxes, doors, hinges and locks, molding, veneer, and inlay.
