This is a history of domestic space in Canada. Peter Ward looks at how spaces in the Canadian home have changed over the last three centuries, and how family and social relationships have shaped - and been shaped by - these changing spaces. A fundamental element of daily life for individuals and families is domestic privacy, that of individuals and that of the family or household.

MEDIA REVIEWS
... packed with wonderful historic details about real Canadian homes and families ... both of these books provide fascinating nuggets of information ... about topics that have been obscured by our myth-making American neighbour. And they bring to life the unique texture of daily Canadian life that was buried in our mothers', fathers', and grandparents' journals, letters, pictures and stories. -- Frances Bula * The Vancouver Sun *
... readers will enjoy this humanized view of Canadian architecture. Ward's book is a welcome complement to the recently published Homeplace by Peter Ennals and Deryck Holdsworth. -- Laurie Stanley-Blackwell * CBRA 2239 *
Throughout, in direct, simple prose, Ward offers stimulating observations on and excellent documentation of the domestic landscape. The photographs and other illustrations are, likewise, highly informative ... highly recommended for all architecture, interior design, and material culture collections. -- Paul Glassman, New York School of Interior Design Library * Library Journal *
