Home entryways and doorways are an integral part of the home's "curb appeal" and financial value. These integral components also welcome visitors and set the stage for what awaits inside the house. This book provides a pictorial survey of the many and varied forms of doorways and entryways in various locations around the United States with over 800 color photos. Twenty different front door styles, outer doors ranging from louvered to security, varying entryway styles, stairways, and walkways and driveways appear here. A glossary of useful terms is also included.
Homeowners, architecture students, and professionals involved in architecture, design, remodeling, and construction of homes and buildings will find this reference an invaluable addition to their libraries.
