House on a Budget
By

Rating
Until now, homeowners have had to choose between the twin worlds of budget-friendly mediocrity and unaffordable fantasy. Responding to this gap, acclaimed architect Duo Dickinson demonstrates that a custom house doesn't depend on a fabulous price tag. House on a Budget, originally published in hardcover as The House You Build, is about a third way of building grounded in the realities of time and money, but focusing on your fondest hopes and dreams. He offers 19 real-world situations where unique and imaginative homes were built on real-life budgets.
Duo's Rules for Getting What You Want (and Can Afford)
1.Use Standard Materials Creatively
2.Shrink to Fit
3.Don't Fight the Site
4.Take Your Time
5.Defer and Save: Building in Phases
6.Take Charge: Spending Time to Save Money
