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.

Book News Annotation:

With 200-plus inviting color photos, water color drawings, and diverse floor plans, Tolpin--host of the Cottage Home Network on the Internet--renders a modern American portfolio of fairy tale visions of home as cottage: from Pacific NW "French hunting lodge" to salvage yard vernacular style. No index. 10x10".
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Fine craftsmanship can turn a basic house into a comfortable, inviting home. This handsome, full-color book walks readers through 28 newly constructed cottage homes and examines the elements that make them unique, personalized, and especially livable. 224 photos, 72 drawings.
