The New Cottage Home: A Tour of Unique American Dwellings

by

The New Cottage Home: A Tour of Unique American Dwellings Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The New Cottage Home taps into today's move toward lifestyle simplicity and the idea that living space should be rich in details, conservative of resources, and no larger than necessary. Jim Tolpin celebrates the diversity and charm of 30 sample cottages, from a Pacific Northwest cottage modeled after a French hunting lodge to a "salvage yard vernacular cottage" built with junkyard materials.

Each featured home reflects individual personality, priorities, and lifestyle. Whether by the water, on a mountain, or in a forest, field, or town, these homes emphasize quality of place over quantity of space.

Synopsis:

A conducted tour of cottage dwellings in backwoods and wilderness North America, packed with inspirational design ideas.
