A beautiful and inspiring display of humdrum houses across America reborn as colorful one-of-a-kind homes

Many of today's young couples are trapped in a cookie-cutter "starter" house, ready to step up to something more spacious and reflective of their tastes but unable to afford it. Suburban Renewal reveals how--with an architect's help--they can remodel a ranch, reshape a cape, or rebuild a builder's colonial for far less than the cost of a new house. Its before-and-after photographs and instructive text show run-of-the-mill houses without a whiff of individuality transformed into unique dwellings with the personalized ambience of every householder's dreams.
