After graduating from the Cornell School of Architecture in 1964, the author returned to his native Atlanta, Georgia, where he worked for several prominent architects over the next two years. Be­tween 1967 and 1973 he worked in Big Sur, California, and Aspen, Color­ado, as a carpenter, and in 1973 he moved to Maho­pac, New York, where since he has worked somewhat chronologically as a carpenter, building contractor, and registered architect.

Between 1981 and 2012 Mr. Butler wrote seven books on architecture, five published by McGraw-Hill. In all his books he has penned every drawing, and in his last five publications he designed the book, formatted the pages, and even designed the typefaces. Although his five books for McGraw-Hill were written for professional architects and engineers, his latest book, Architecture Laid Bare!, is written primarily for laymen.
