Best Bookstore for the Frustrated Architect in You 

Builders Booksource

Builders Booksource stocks thousands and thousands and thousands of titles on home design, architecture, landscape architecture, construction, and guides to do-it-yourself projects of all levels of complexity, from pouring concrete for a small patio to building an entire house out of straw bales, but its range extends far beyond. The shop also has government publications such as those dealing with building codes -- like the brand-new and soon-to-be-standard International Residential Code -- design software, and other references invaluable to the building professional or wannabe. And, if you're more inclined to, say, daydream about finally refinishing that chair than to build a solar-powered treehouse, there's also a good selection of design magazines.
