The New Small House presents a set of small house design strategies, as well as whole-house case studies, for homeowners eager to simplify, and remodelers, builders, architects, and designers looking for inspiration. You will be amazed by the ingenious and attractive designs of these 25 small homes (some less than 1,000 square feet). The houses are categorized by their location, from waterside gems to city dwellings, and include new construction and renovations featured in 275 beautiful color photographs and 30 detailed illustrations.

Think small.
