The most popular American house styles continue to be the old stalwarts--Capes, Bungalows, Victorians, etc. The challenge we continue to face is how to live in them. Most often, we need more space. The solution? Add it on. The problem? How to do it right. Architect Frank Shirley has had a hand in nearly two decades worth of old-house projects--he knows the right and wrong way to expand any classic American home. There's a real need for this information because, as Shirley knows, there are no books available for homeowners who are considering expanding a beloved old home. An old house expert, Shirley has developed a unique approach. Using the guiding principle of harmony-- that anything added must be in consonance with the whole house--and four design cornerstones, he has made the process of building an addition into an art form.

Walking readers through his four design cornerstones--balance, transition, public v. private space, and materials-- architect Shirley also leads readers on a house tour through the golden age of American architecture.
