What is it about some houses that makes us long to live there while others leave us cold? What is it, in other words, that makes a house distinctive? Leading residential architect Jeremiah Eck identifies the four key elements that can turn an ordinary house into a memorable home: good siting, well-designed floor plans, elegant exterior forms, and details that transmit an enduring sense of quality, warmth, and character. While each of these ingredients alone can elevate a house from mundane to noteworthy, when considered together the result is a truly distinctive dwelling. THE DISTINCTIVE HOME will teach you how to: * Make the most of the site you have, whether it's in a suburban development or woodsy stretch * Develop floor plans to use space in a way that reflects how you really live * Transform a purely functional space into an inspired interior by stylizing elements, such a stairs and cabinets * Understand what you like in a home and communicate why you like it.
