Who doesn't dream of the perfect getaway place? Dale Mulfinger, author of The Cabin, addresses the increasing popularity of recreational homes-both new and remodeled-in The Getaway Home. Written for active adults and families who place a high premium on the enjoyment of nature, this book is organized according to four settings: woods and wilderness, mountains, water sites, and desert. Readers are invited into 24 remarkable homes from across the country, all designed for getting away from it all. With over 300 color photos and drawings, they can discover how the design requirements are dictated by activities, environment, and site. For those who pine for a cottage on the water or a compound in the woods, The Getaway Home helps fulfill dreams of the ultimate escape.
