I compulsively read this book cover to cover in two nights. The author is a retired engineer, and correct engineering design is his second career. Why live in a house that doesn't "work" properly? Beware of washing machines in the basement, trendy countertop basins, and bad register locations. Hundreds of photographs illustrate the pitfalls of the lazy builder. Better Houses, Better Living will forever change the way you look at your house.
