Book Description

1 May 2010
This new book by Stephen Crafti showcases innovative budget-driven architecture. These new houses, extensive renovations, and kit homes illustrate how dreams can be achieved with restricted funds. Rather than attempting to fulfill endless wish lists, the architects and designers of these budget-conscious projects first assessed what was needed. Including more than 40 projects from Europe, the United States, Japan, and Australia, this book highlights the fact that strong ideas are often more valuable than unlimited budgets. And in lean times, more people are looking for imaginative solutions that won't cost the earth.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not really relevant for the UK... 15 April 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Almost all of the houses in this book are in Australia, many in a country / suburban setting, and many in a modern style that would never be allowed here is the UK. The text was quite dull and unengaging, no real discussion of clever features, smart ideas, the construction or ideas to take on to other projects. Disappointing.

3.0 out of 5 stars "Affordable" 16 Jan 2012
By Hillary Kramer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
What I consider affordable and what the author considers affordable is like comparing an apple to an orange. If you have any clue what materials cost to build a home you will quickly realize you may also differ from the author. I will say I do like this book, but I do think affordable and budget is a slight play on words.

3.0 out of 5 stars No discount housing here, but great references. 13 Feb 2013
By Dr. James Berryhill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A very attractive book and a good concept but the "budget" that the authors are talking about is far and away out of the range I was looking for. The references are worth the price of the book.
