At the close of the year 2011, we want to thank you, our readers, for reading, for commenting, and hopefully, enjoying!
We have compiled our top blogs of the year, based on interest from our newsletter readers and visitors to our site (with the help of our trusty ‘Mad Mimi’ and ‘Google Analytics’).

In this series, we present a building type, then look at the different elements of design – in this case, exterior, common areas and living space. This blog presented recent multi-family housing from around the globe.

And in a series that we have just begun, we present a structure type or material and look at the possibilties. We started with this type because we are currently finishing a post-and-beam project on the shoreline.
