This title includes a foreword by H. R. H. the Prince of Wales. Sick of McMansions? Marianne Cusato, creator of the award-winning Katrina Cottages, is a champion of traditional architectural principles: structural common sense, aesthetics of form, appropriateness to a neighbourhood and sustainability. She presents the definitive guide to what makes houses look and feel right, revealing the dos and don'ts of liveable home design. Hundreds of elegant line drawings, rendering the varieties of architectural features and displaying "avoid" and "use" versions of the same elements side by side, make this an indispensable resource for designing and building a timelessly beautiful home.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for Get Your House Right
"[A]n important and much needed book."--Sarah Susanka, FAIA, architect and author of The Not So Big series and Home by Design
"Marianne Cusato translates architectural language into the vernacular and, by doing so, into the reach of the average consumer, where such knowledge is guaranteed to do the most good....this 'Rosetta stone' of design will guarantee Cusato a place in the history of twenty-first century American architecture."-- The Philadelphia Inquirer
"[Cusato] provides a vision of how we live together and build on our planet, and points out the consequences of flawed building practices not only to our environment, but to our spirit and our soul."--Michael Lykoudis, Dean, University of Notre Dame School of Architecture
