foreword

I work with homeowners to design and eventually build their ultimate treehouse on my television show Treehouse Masters. I help people step out of their comfort zone, think outside the box, and create something unique that their family can enjoy for decades to come. When you don’t even have enough information to discuss the practical aspects of your project, it is impossible to take that next creative step towards making it specific to the needs and personality of your family long term.

Stephanie Wascha’s Dear Homeowner, Please Take My Advice. Sincerely, An Architect not only provides the necessary practical and creative guidelines to successfully get from point A to point B without wasting a lot of money, but she offers friendly marital do’s and don’ts to make the whole process a bit smoother for you and your spouse. I work with homeowners everywhere, and I have seen firsthand the exact challenges she can help you avoid. I wish my wife and I had read this book before we did our own remodel! Additionally, she delivers this litany of information in a slightly humorous way, making it both entertaining and informative. It is an easy, must-read for anyone looking to modify or build a home.
