A House on the Water: Inspiration for Living at the Waters Edge by Robert Knight

Living in a house on the water is an almost universal desire. People are naturally drawn to the water -- both for recreation and relaxation -- and sites on the water sell quickly.But what is it really like to live on the water? Maine architect Robert Knight explores 24 homes in this book that represent outstanding examples of the relationship of house to water -- seaside, lakeside, and riverside -- with clear explanation of the design and construction details necessary to create a beautiful house that can withstand the sometimes severe conditions at the waters edge. With the help of 300 color photos and site plans, A House on the Water deals with these issues successfully, and the solutions to these technical problems enhance the quality of the design rather than forcing compromises in it.Whether you are actively creating a home at the waters edge or simply dreaming about it, A House on the Water provides both inspiration and valuable design advice for a home that respects the coastline, fits into the surroundings, and is built to withstand the unique conditions of the site for generations to come.
