Not So Big Remodeling: Tailoring Your Home for the Way You Really Live


Not So Big Remodeling: Tailoring Your Home for the Way You Really Live Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

More big ideas from Sarah Susanka including hundreds of 'Not So Big ideas' that can beautifully and affordably transform any home. Sometimes small changes can have a big impact. But many homeowners looking for more living space still insist on building expensive additions or completely rebuilding their home. In the latest groundbreaking step in the Not So Big revolution, Sarah Susanka and Marc Vassallo demonstrate how carefully chosen tweaks and simple additions can make a home seem much larger and more inviting. They avoid high-end architectural solutions, focusing instead on how Not So Big ideas can dramatically improve even the most modest home. The authors show readers how to think like an architect, so they can accurately assess their homes shortcomings, apply Not So Big principles to their remodeling plan, and phase in their project incrementally over time.
