Each page promotes a reason to select a concrete home: it's beautiful, or comfortable, or livable, or clean, and so on. The photos of home exteriors are identified by architect, builder and location, showing that concrete homes are practical choices all over the US, from the cold winters of New England to the steady sun of Miami. Many people were ready to build a new home after the end of WWII, and this book was right there to promote concrete homes as an affordable and wise choice.
