This is a clear “do” & “avoid” (don’t do) discourse with sets of illustrative sketches  that show the pitfalls and errors in the selection, use and placement of architectural elements.
This is an excellent discussion and usefull reference for homeowners, real estate and building professionals alike.

The “orders” of architectural design are introduced and discussed in a very clear and direct manner.
This material will empower the uniniated to make intelegent choices and not be fooled or unduly swayed by “lipstick and mascara” dressings and details

The language of architecture is revealed and demistified..
Some houses have “curb appeal”, some you don’t like and some feel ‘off’.
This book tells you why.
