From selecting a plan to judging its room-by-room suitability and requesting modifications, Home Plan Doctor offers cost-effective suggestions and encouraging guidance so that you can create the house of your dreams.

"Like a Consumer’s Guide for electronics, this book gets ‘under the hood’ of what makes a space into a workable, functional, happy house, translating arcane architectural language into everyday language.  Not just for house plans -- anyone who is looking to buy a home, and to shape the where and the way of how they live, needs to own this book."  Melanie Taylor, Melanie Taylor Architecture & Gardens LLC

 

Larry Garnett’s Home Plan Doctor provides a powerful dose of preventative medicine for those who wish to avoid the headaches of homebuilding.  This comfortably written, ultra-informative book is absolutely loaded with often-overlooked details that are essential to consider before you build.  I guarantee you’ll find yourself saying “I never would have thought of that” – but you’ll be thankful Larry did.
