by Lou Maxon During the process of planning, designing, and ultimately constructing our future home, we discovered inspiration, resources, and motivation in a plethora of places, both online and off. These range from individuals blogging (like us), to companies providing practical information, to brands (like Dwell) that connect those interested in modern architecture. There are plenty of other books and places you can go to find ideas and resources, and I encourage readers to share their favorites in the comments below. Our hope with sharing our story is to not only pass on the things we've found, but to inspire others to make the leap and go after their own dream project. The trek towards a finished house is a lengthy one and some days you think it will never end. On those days, these inspirations and resources kept us motivated. We hope you find that they provide the same for you, no matter where you are in the process. In our latest Backstory series, Seattleite Lou Maxon recounts the thrills and trials of ditching the suburbs, buying property, and designing and building a modern house with Tom Kundig of Olson Kundig Architects. Week 21: Inspiration and Resources.
