    • Description

      Until now, homeowners have had to choose between the twin worlds of budget-friendly mediocrity and unaffordable fantasy. Responding to this gap, acclaimed architect Duo Dickinson demonstrates that a custom house doesn't depend on a fabulous price tag. "House on a Budget”, originally published in hardcover as "The House You Build”, is about a third way of building grounded in the realities of time and money, but focusing on your fondest hopes and dreams. He offers 19 real-world situations where unique and imaginative homes were built on real-life budgets. Duo's Rules for Getting What You Want (and Can Afford) 1. Use Standard Materials Creatively 2. Shrink to Fit 3. Don't Fight the Site 4. Take Your Time 5. Defer and Save: Building in Phases 6. Take Charge: Spending Time to Save Money.
