About the author
As a freelance feature writer specialising in residential building, Paula Evans has looked at hundreds of homes over the years, from budget-friendly pads for first homebuyers to multi-million-dollar mansions and luxurious country hideaways; from glorious Hamptons-style manor homes to quirky loft-style apartments, suburban castles and retro retreats. For many years Paula was a principal feature writer with one of Western Australia's most popular home magazines, reviewing builders' show homes, sharing the building and renovating stories of house-proud homeowners, and hunting down insider design tips and building advice on everything from style to sustainability. When it comes to designing and building the modern home, Paula has looked at the eco-friendly and the super-green, the colourful, the monochrome, the uber-sleek and the proudly eclectic. She has looked at homes small and large, and everything in between, and has built and renovated, both in Australia and in England. After cutting her teeth as a local newspaper journalist in the West of England back in the day, Paula started her editorial services and PR business more than 25 years ago. Today Paula embraces the new era of content development, writing blogs, guides, features and e-books on behalf of a diverse range of clients, including a number of leading home builders and land developers. Paula's writing is insightful and engaging, making her your best friend when it comes planning and designing a new home.
