If you are weary of a large house with high property taxes, big utility bills, tons of maintenance, and too much stuff, you're definitely not alone! Millions of Americans are turning to smaller living spaces as a pathway to a happier, stress-reduced life.
The Giant Book of Tiny Homes captures the essence of this downsizing trend by showcasing homes across a spectrum of styles and locations, each filled with stylish interiors, ingenious solutions for small-space living, and stories of contented homeowners. Plus, you'll get great advice and insights from the growing number of talented builders and architects who have trained their skills on creating beautiful, imaginative smaller dwellings. Whether custom-designed for a traditional foundation, assembled on a moveable trailer, or flat-packed and flown in by helicopter, small houses are all about "less is more." If you're a small house aficionado or simply considering the possibilities, this book is your inspiration for living large in a small space!
