I received a nice review from Tim Carter, master builder in his newsletter this week. Thanks Tim!
“More than a few months ago Bill Hirsch Jr, AIA send me his book to review. It’s filled with solid advice about what you need to know about how to build a new home. The book contains stunning photos, but its also filled with lots of practical advice. I can tell you I’ve been inside many homes that have basic design flaws that cause all sorts of issues. Even here at my own home I have a few. I didn’t build the house I live in here in NH. My own home here has a very common deck design flaw. My deck is only 10 feet wide out from the house. That’s too narrow to put a small 4-foot diameter table with chairs and have enough room for people to get by when people are seated at the table. (If you want to know the minimum width for a deck click here). I have a lot of the same advice on my website, but Bill has consolidated it in this book. It’s worth every penny, so I suggest you order it.” February 19, 2016
