For those of you looking for a little bit of inspiration on how to tackle the whole affordable/modern conundrum, there is some new help from Taunton Press available. Its called Good House, Cheap House: Adventures in Creating an Extraordinary Home at an Ordinary Price, and it is written by Kira Obolensky who is a playwright with a passion for modern houses. The book covers 27 different houses with one thing in common, they are all built by people who crave nice modern design, but can't afford to shell out the typical modern prices. I haven't read it yet, but it looks like it has gotten some good reviews, and has some good tips in it. My favorite was using sliding glass doors for large, inexpensive, operable windows. Definitely have to check that idea out. So if you are writing a book for the budget conscious, it can't cost a fortune right? Well $16 for a hardback sounds about right to me. Check it out, and let us know what you think.
