Limited space doesn’t need to mean limited style, as Koones (the author of numerous books on pre-fab houses) illustrates beautifully in her new book. The 26 modern homes that are featured (including ADUs and converted garages) show how small can be comfortable, practical, efficient, and less expensive. There is endless style inspiration here, but also great advice on downsizing and maximizing space and energy-efficiency.— S.B.
Inspiration and answers for people wanting to live more sustainably in a smaller house while respecting the environment and saving money on energy and maintenance.
2022 NYC Big Award, WINNER: Book Interior Design--Nonfiction
Smaller, more environmentally friendly houses seem to be the wave of the future. As people chose to move out of cities, finances and lifestyle will limit the size of the houses these buyers will choose.
This book includes lots of examples of small house options around the country, including ADUs (accessory dwelling units). Whether you're building a small house, renovating an older home, or purchasing something new, this book will provide inspiration. It compiles lots of previously difficult-to-find information in one place. The sidebars describe home systems and new materials helpful to any homeowner concerned about the environment and hoping to save money on energy and maintenance.
