Converted into Houses
By Charles A. Fracchia. Photographs by Jeremiah O. Bragstad.
Another beyond-fantastic title about unconventional homes! This time about converted buildings. Says the author: “Some of the most delightful houses in the world did not being as houses at all. Converted with ingenuity from cheap and available outbuildings and commercial public structures, they provide generous space, the opportunity for creative expression, and a lively sense of association with other uses and other times.” If you've ever wanted a break from the monotony of conventional modern housing (and let's face it, who hasn't?) you can keep dreaming within the pages of this book – packed as it is with 70s era photos of beautiful converted barns, lofts, old schoolhouses, churches – even a chicken coop!
