This new book by Stephen Crafti showcases innovative budget-driven architecture. These new houses, extensive renovations, and kit homes illustrate how dreams can be achieved with restricted funds. Rather than attempting to fulfill endless wish lists, the architects and designers of these budget-conscious projects first assessed what was needed. Including more than 40 projects from Europe, the United States, Japan, and Australia, this book highlights the fact that strong ideas are often more valuable than unlimited budgets. And in lean times, more people are looking for imaginative solutions that won't cost the earth.
