Both public libraries and collections strong in home architecture choices will find it a popular pick. Feb. 7 2007
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Building a house on the water is quite different than building one on land - and over forty of the north country's best boathouses are revealed here, from 19th century wonders to those which are modern creations. Various architects and designers have produced some outstanding boathouses which are created to blend with their environments: this offers inspiration and insight for any designer whether working at the cottage level all the way up to full-sized Victorian representations. Both public libraries and collections strong in home architecture choices will find it a popular pick.

I bought this for my husband as a Father's Day gift. To say he was happy would be an understatement! I noticed the smile on his face with each turned page. This is a lovely book, and I would highly recommend it for anyone who loves the great outdoors, and especially the water!

I thought that this book was going to reflect the best of both traditional and more modern interpretations of the
finest boat houses all around the Great Lakes. Instead it is a limited selection of mostly uninspiring, older boathouses
all from the same area of Canada. Nearly a waste of money.
