Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

You can live in an attractive, aesthetically appealing. upscale house AND you can do it so that it is quality built, architecturally beautiful, highly marketable and profitable. Small is beautiful and functional in housing. Smaller scale homes can be more livable, cozy, homey, enjoyable, low maintenance, easy to clean. They can be more affordable and socially responsible than the current trend of MacMansions that is chewing up America. Some of them can be built on existing lots without requiring new land purchase. Impress neighbors with style and freedom rather than with large scale imperaonally built square footage.

Book News Annotation:

Both Foreman and Lee are licensed contractors in Virginia. They have been building tiny houses--ranging from 300 to 1,000 square feet in size--for 15-plus years and are active in promoting conservation subdivisions, cluster housing, and ecologically healthy home construction. Following discussion of what a tiny house is and the type of people tiny houses suit, they present examples of houses and housing communities they have built to explain the issues and considerations to be taken into account, as well as the many benefits to be realized by those who choose a tiny home.
