About the Author

As an advocate of "less is more" in residential architecture and interior design, Fine Homebuilding contributing editor Sarah Susanka has emerged as one of America's favorite home architects. Her books Creating the Not So Big House and The Not So Big House offer a new vision for the American home: houses about a third smaller than what you thought you needed — but better suited to your lifestyle. In short, quality over quantity.

Sarah has been featured by U.S. News and World Report as one of 18 innovators in American culture, and she had a featured article in USA Weekend's 5th Annual Home and Garden Issue for Spring 2001. She has appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show, the Charlie Rose Show, and numerous radio shows around the country. She is a former principal and founding partner of the firm chosen by LIFE magazine to design its 1999 Dream Home.
