ABOUT THE BOOK
Design an Expandable House chronicles the multi-staged development of an
elegant 3-story house using Styrofoam ICF building blocks and other innovative building
materials. It shows how to build a house in stages, starting with an initial living space
and systematically adding to the structure by design.
Following a trip to France to study the architecture
of a classic Normandy chateau, author Stanley Mazor
created floor plans on his home computer, and
constructed an 1,800 square foot, 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath summer
home. Following the original plan, a 3,000 square foot left
wing was added. Finally, the right wing shown in the
figures below was completed, and is fully covered in the
new second edition.
The techniques used and lessons learned in the process make this book an ideal resource for new
home designers and professionals alike. It is profusely illustrated with more than 70
photographs and many diagrams.
