Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In her latest book, best-selling author of "The Not So Big House" Sarah Susanka teams up with architectural design writer Marc Vassallo to expand upon the message that has resonated with over a million homeowners and builders across the country: opting for personalized, well-crafted, thoughtfully designed spaces over superfluous square footage results in a home that comforts and nourishes those who live there.

In "Inside The Not So Big House," Susanka and Vassallo focus their lens on the tangible and sometimes intangible details that bring an otherwise ordinary home to life. Incorporating such details as dropped ceilings, built-in shelves, pocket doors, window seats, and well-placed alcoves infuses a home with the character of its owners and conveys a uniqueness that's mising in many homes built or remodeled today. From Rhode Island to San Diego, the 23 homes featured here illustrate exceptional attention to detail. Each offers inspiration for those building or remodeling to transform their home into an expression of all that is important to them. "Detail is everything in design. Sarah Susanka proves it again with this, her latest book."

--John Wheatman, author, "Meditations on Design" and "A Good House Is Never Done"

Synopsis:

One of the leading residential architects in the country takes an up-close look at the well-crafted details that can personalize any home. Examples from 24 homes show how paying attention to detail brings an otherwise ordinary home to life.
