Listening to your house

comments (0) December 9th, 2008 in Blogs
grateful.ed Chuck Miller, editor at large

“This is a story about a woman in love with her house. It's also about your house. Your sister's. And your best friend's. It's about intuition, and some fundamental principles of design. And it's about how we all can learn to love our houses a little more.”

And so reads the abstract to the article, “Listening to Your House,” which was originally published in the first issue of Inspired House magazine, nearly five years ago. I think the advice is still sound, and invite you to read the article, available online for the first time.

By the way, if you are a fan of Inspired House, or just want to read more about architecture and design, albeit with a Fine Homebuilding twist, check out our Design channel. There you will find more on the topic, and additional Inspired House articles and advice.
