    I enjoyed this book I found three great designs that may meet my needs

    I think this book is really excellent All of the houses featured are small under 1250 s ft but extremely livable Each house has a brief description a drawing of the house floor plans yay and often axonometric drawings or sections super yay Some even have construction ready sections Too many architecture books don't include floor plans so it's very difficult to get a feel for the interior space but this one really has everything you need I love the variety of styles included from traditional to architectural although the sort of artisticarchitectural pieces seem a little stuck in postmodernism rather than featuring some of the newer developments I also really like the focus on sustainability and energy efficient design that many of the houses have something which didn't seem necessarily intended but is a corollary to reasonably sized homes I really recommend this book not only because it is good and lots of fun to look through but especially since American houses have moved far past a reasonable expectation of space for each person

    While there are some interesting concepts in this book it is let down by not having photographs This is probably due to the fact that many of these buildings have not yet been builtThat said all buildings have floor plans and elevation drawings or often detailed construction plans So this is probably a book for people who either are good at envisaging things from plans and technical drawings or have some plans and want to do a comparison rather than someone still just 'looking for ideas'

    Well I don't think of 1250 suare feet as smallbut in today's world I'm sure it's a good cut off point I really liked the set up of the book sketches of exteriors from every side floorplans wall designs eco features I'm hoping to end up in a much smaller house once we are empty nesters and I liked the ideas in this book So while I'm planning houses 30 50% smaller the book still had good layout ideas and eco features I'd like to use

    There isn't a whole lot of reading Mostly it is just a bunch of house designs in diagrams But it was good I got some really good ideas Not that I'm building a house but I have a better idea of what I could do and what I like


  6. Gail Gail says:

    This book was not really what I expected I was hoping it would have information about building small homes but it literally is just sketches and brief descriptions of different award winning homes


  7. Jackie Jackie says:

    Was fun to look at These are award winning designs and as such they have small suare footage but the actual cost of construction would still be expensive because of the designs Was kind of hoping for affordable designs


  8. Anne Anne says:

    More for architects as an idea generator rather than anything practical for the lay person Rather disappointed actually


  9. Nora Nora says:

    No really good photos or illustrations of what these houses would look like if built very technical I'm sure it's meaningful to someone just not me


  10. Holly Holly says:

    I enjoyed this book I just wish there were a few photos of finished houses
