Philippa Lewis begins this very accessible, illustrated survey of domestic architecture with a concise history of vernacular building from the earliest surviving medieval houses to low environmental impact housing of the early 2000s. Using around 600 of her own photographs of properties throughout Britain, she goes on to discuss types of housing, including bungalows, cottages, manor houses, terraces and conversions, and their architectural and decorative features, in sections arranged alphabetically from Apartments to Windows.
