Building and designing your home (B&N link)

This link takes you to a collection of house building and planning books available from Barnes & Noble: Barnes & Noble.com - Book Search: Architecture, Domestic->Amateurs' manuals

My book, Building a Cool House for Hot Times without Scorching the Pocketbook, is included. It's out in a new edition with color photos; the ISBN number on that edition is 978-1-60749-562-8; and it's available from: Online Bookstore (You'll have to type the title into the search box.)

It covers the building process and what’s involved in building your home and includes diary excerpts, photos, and advice from planning to punch list and beyond; and it got a rave review from The Midwest Book Review and was on the Reviewer's Choice list: http://www.midwestbookreview.com/sbw/feb_05.htm#rc

And here's a link to a free excerpt: http://www.freebookexcerpts.com/2008/05/08/building-a-cool-house-for-hot-times-without-scorching-the-pocketbook-by-joy-smith/
