Simple Rules: What the Oldtime Builders Knew

Simple Rules: What the Oldtime Builders Knew

Author: Shannon Scarlett

Simple Rules is a new kind of builder handbook / design guide.


Inspired by long forgotten sources, the design content included
here--timeless composition principles, elegant proportional systems,
building techniques and formulas for making buildings more beautiful--is
intended as a guide for the modern builder who cares about aesthetics
and meaning as much or more than the bottom line.


In this small guide a few select concepts and techniques,
salvaged mostly from 18th, 19th and early 20th century builder pocket
references and architectural guides, have been resurrected and
abridged--or interpreted where possible--for practical use by the 21st
century architect and homebuilder.
