Completely rewritten and updated, the revised edition of Build It Right! is more useful than ever to people building or buying a new home. An improved format and many more illustrations make the book even easier to read and understand.

The building industry is geared to giving people what they want in their new homes-which is free as long as buyers have the knowledge and experience to know what's good and what's not. Unfortunately, Louis Sullivan's 125 year old idea that "form follows function" is no more a part of our culture today than it was then. Homes may look good but at the same time make extra, unnecessary work for the people living in them. Hence the need for this book.

Build It Right! is full of the common sense insights that help people break out of the "if only we'd thought of it before" syndrome. It does what other how-to books on new homes don't do; it looks at homes from the consumer's viewpoint with emphasis on how to make it user-friendly.

The book goes through the house from systems to room-by-room detail and explains what will work free and what may cause problems. It is a book that will pay for itself many times over. Anyone associated with building new homes, including builders, home designers and particularly buyers, will benefit from reading Build It Right!

Easy to read and informative, Build It Right! is the buyer's one-of-a kind guide to a more livable, user-friendly home
