Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sarah Susanka's Not So Big Solutions for Your Home explores practical design ideas that can transform any house into a great house that looks, works and feels right for the owner.

Sarah Susanka, whose previous best-selling books showed homeowners how to appreciate and create a house that is beautiful, visually expansive and reflective of how families really live, now offers readers practical, everyday design ideas on everything from selecting a site for a new home to designing a mail-sorting space. Photographs, along with over 150 drawings from Sarah Susanka's own sketchbook, illustrate practical home design ideas for everyday living.

Not So Big Solutions for Your Home is a compilation of over 30 columns written by Sarah Susanka for Fine Homebuilding magazine.

-- Makes architecture and design accessible to people who are not trained in the field

-- Provides a wide variety of practical, accessible, everyday solutions

Book News Annotation:

First written for Susanka's column in Fine Homebuilding, these pieces don't just offer tips and solutions, they teach the homeowner how to think about their house like a (really thoughtful) architect or designer would. The text is well illustrated with detailed color drawings and photographs that clearly show the various dos and don'ts described. Integrating activities within a single space is the key to Susanka's "not so big" philosophy of making a cozy home.
