Review:

Storey Communications sponsored an international competition for the best home designs under 1,250 square feet, and this exciting book contains the results. In an age of dwindling resources and energy conservation concerns, the benefits of small houses are many. But the real challenge of small- home design is to create a space that doesn't feel tiny, cramped, or confining. The book contains 34 individual designs, including traditionally styled homes that would fit nicely in older, established neighborhoods, unusual homes built into hillsides, a visually stunning urban row house, small homes for the backwoods that appear to float in the air like tree houses, and many more. All are designed with an eye to energy conservation and the use of alternative energy, such as passive solar energy and photovoltaic power. The drawings and floor plans can easily be adapted for site and personal tastes. These are some of the biggest small houses you will ever see.

From the Back Cover:

Small homes are BIG:

big on style,

big on convenience,

and big on savings.
