Reminiscent of James Herriot's "All Creatures Great and Small", this wonderful volume captures the life of a domestic country architect with wry humour and near-slapstick pathos."Confessions of a Country Architect" will delight those who have built a house, forewarn those summoning up the courage to do so, and calm those who realize their talents might be better confined to an armchair as Metz describes learning the ABCs of working with 'a weapons-grade jackhammer', the 'precise choreographies' of a D - 8 Caterpillar, and the euphoria induced whilst performing acrobatic feats of carpentry on rickety ladders.
