Book Review: Home Plan Doctor

I just finished reading Home Plan Doctor by Larry Garnett, and I was very impressed by the topics and content. I checked the book out at the library, but I plan on buying it and keeping it as a reference.

What I like:
  • A systematic walk-through of the house, giving the most important design elements you should consider
  • Design suggestions based on livability, not show
  • Clear discussion of design concepts without using over-inflated phrases like "vernacular", "dynamic forms", etc.
  • Great diagrams

If you are designing a house or planning on remodeling, I think it's well worth the read.
