Book Review: Clouse's Houses
Clouse's Houses by Carol Clouse
I was very excited when I won this book because I have a love for building houses and floor plans. I was even more excited when I skipped to the back of the book to read Carol Clouse's 'About the Author' section. The last line that is written about her says "The Spirit that moves through all things moves through us all, and Carol believes it shines most brightly through our creative ventures!" Nothing can be more true in life, this is exactly how I feel. I went in to this book thinking how Carol and I are kindred spirits and how I would love this book. It did not disappoint. Through this book we go through Carol's many endeavors from building her own house, to her parents house, to sets for a play. Carol does it all. I loved hearing about her life. No matter what happened Carol kept her head up, even during her low points she was still high spirited and new something good would come along eventually. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it to those who love architecture, the outdoors, nature, and creativity.
