At Home: A Guide to Creating Your Perfect Home (The Press)

Author(s): David Killick

Building & Construction

This book is a guide to creating your perfect home. It is an extension of some of the feature articles published in 'at home' - the popular monthly supplement to The Press in Christchurch. �The book is in two parts. Part One covers the main points to consider before tackling a major project in the home. It starts with the dream itself: how do you choose what kind of home you really want? Following chapters examine problems facing New Zealand householders today, for example the need for more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly homes. Then the book looks at the basics of how to renovate an existing home for maximum value, and goes through the house room by room: kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms are discussed. Landscaping and garden design, choosing art and furniture, and living with new technology are all covered too, in a logical and straightforward manner. First published November 2008.
