This book features 25 houses designed in a 35-year period by currently practicing architects for their mothers, fathers, and close relatives. Included are the well-known works of recognized designers, and early works from promising young architects. Extensive interviews with the architects and their parents reveal the joys and difficulties of these most personal commissions. These houses reflect a variety of styles and building materials. Many are the first commissions by these architects and often they were completed on a shoestring budget. From the Old House Journal reference library.
