Makes the process of designing and drawing your own home seem like a lot of fun! The information is conveyed mostly via cartoons and examples, and is simple and motivational.

A bit like Brain Surgery for Dummies. Some good points and information, some of it too basic, some of it assumes too much knowledge and skill. Would have liked more in depth information on house design, and less about model building, etc. which really is something of a specialist skill.
