This book considers the setting of dwellings in the landscape or in an urban environment, then looks at plan types and materials used in their construction. Each of the three main rooms, kitchen, parlour and bedroom, are studied in detail with their fixtures and fittings. These elements generate the soul of the building, transforming a house into a home, filled with a tangible atmosphere, layered with personality. Their loss is irreplaceable, as is the direct link to past generations.
