Overview

Author and artist Mark Bennett compiles his entertaining collection of blueprints extrapolated from the storylines and sets of the 1950s to 1980s television sitcom homes millions of Americans grew up with. An extraordinary work of imagination, these blueprints of TV homes that are as familiar to us as our neighbor's den and backyard give us a fascinating "real life" view that the camera angles never offered.

From Ward and June Cleaver's house to Rob and Laura Petrie's apartment to Mary Richards's Minneapolis bachelorette apartment to the Jetson's "house" in the clouds, each home is lovingly recreated with painstaking precision in the fine blue lines of architectural blueprints.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I've always wanted to see a floor plan of the Clampett Mansion in Beverly Hills, and the Petrie Home of Rob and Laura. Sure, none of these places are 'real,' but when I tuned in to episodes of the TV shows in question, the accuracy of the plans in the book, and the appearances of the interiors onscreen, was downright scary! My hats off to the author. I would like to see him do a sequel of even more classic TV homes, or perhaps more recent TV show floor plans.
