Smaller is big, says architect and author Katie Hutchison, whose book The New Small House shows those looking to downsize how they can live smartly, economically and environmentally friendly in elegantly designed homes.

With 275 gorgeous photographs and 30 detailed illustrations, The New Small House takes the reader on a tour of North America and spotlights small houses in rural, coastal, and in-town locations. The book presents fundamental small-house design strategies, complete with whole-house case studies for homeowners eager to simplify.

Creating a great small house is illustrated in the opening chapter with 10 approaches, including:

  • borrowed view and daylight
  • multipurpose spaces
  • privacy pockets
  • using quality materials

Twenty-five stunning small houses are profiled in the second part of the book, organized by the nature of their locations.

Review:

"If you are thinking of building, you must read The New Small House, by architect Katie Hutchison (Taunton, 2015). She defines the small house as 1,700 sq. ft. or less, which is roughly the size of the New England house that she and her husband Chris call home. I think her ten small-house design strategies are especially useful -- they offer a disciplined approach to analyzing what makes a small house feel larger than it is, and by extension what makes good design. Katie's book offers a wealth of examples for each strategy and shows houses by the water, in the country, in the village, in the town, and there is a final section on retreats. Think of the book as an extension of Sarah Susanka's famous Not So Big House series of publications. Use the principles to help you find the perfect house plan for your needs and lot!"

Book Description Taunton Press Inc, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. On the heels of the recession, there's been a resurgence of interest in small houses (1500 square feet and less) and even smaller retreats (800 square feet and less).

Magazines and newspapers (like the New York Times) are featuring these smaller wonders more and more frequently, and architects are displaying more of them on their websites. Now is the time to re-present fundamental small-house design strategies - complete with whole-house case studies for homeowners eager to simplify smartly. The opening chapter presents ten clearly defined strategies for creating a great small house (including borrowed view and daylight, multipurpose spaces, pockets for privacy and using quality materials where it counts), setting the stage for 25 small houses profiled in the second part of the book. The houses are organised by the nature of their location (beach, rural, village, urban) and include new construction and renovations/additions. Seller Inventory # AAJ9781627109185
