A good book about small housing March 11 2009
By Mortone - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is a good book about row, or town houses. It is not a picture, or one with a lot of plans and details. However, what plans and drawings that are present, and there are many are supported by the text that is worth reading. The book presents a frame work of how one might look at the issues of housing in general, and town houses in particular.
