Comments: Get character even in a spec home
This book is very specific in how to add character, why it works, and specifics on using each detail. Finding older homes in our area is difficult in our price range, but we'll definitely be able to add those delightful touches in a new spec house. Great book.

Comments: Full of ideas and inspiration
I love homes that have their own unique character and charm. This book provides ideas and suggestions for adding character to your home, even if right now it's only your typical cookie-cutter home. Great photos and inspiration. Well written.
