2 Cabins and Cottages and Other Small Spaces
Editors of Fine Homebuilding Magazine USA Taunton Press Inc 2014 1627107452 / 9781627107457 Soft cover New Book 27.6 x 21.6 x 1.2 cm 
This is an inspiring guide to maximising the potential of small homes and spaces. Harnesses a bestselling topic: home construction solutions for limited space. It looks at a variety of houses as well as a selection of sheds, studios, and other small structures. Just because a home is smaller doesn't mean it can't serve all the purposes a larger home did - it just takes careful planning and some smart strategies which are provided in Cabins & Cottages and Other Small Spaces. In this collection from Fine Homebuilding magazine, the authors look at houses both new and remodelled, urban and rural, traditional and modern, and even a few of the truly quirky. The houses exude as much style as homes many times their square footage and all are as big as they need to be to fit the lifestyles and aspirations of the people who live in them. Included will also be a selection of sheds, studios, and other small structures demonstrating interesting uses of small spaces.

The New Small House, Katie Hutchison
5 The New Small House
Katie Hutchison USA Taunton Press 2015 1631864408 / 9781631864407 Hardcover New Book 28.2 x 22.4 x 1.8 cm 
Though the median size of a new single-family house is back on the rise--after a brief decline during the 2007-2009 U.S. recession--many are now choosing to live small deliberately. They're building smaller, more environmentally and economically friendly homes. The New Small House presents small-house design strategies as well as whole-house case studies from across the U.S. and Canada for homeowners eager to simplify, and remodelers, builders, architects, and designers looking for inspiration. The ingenious and attractive designs of these 24 small houses (ranging in size from 500 square feet to 1640 square feet) suit young families, independent couples, single folks and those entering retirement. 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 illustrations. The introduction defines 10 time-tested small-house design strategies, like borrowed view and daylight, multipurpose spaces, outdoors in and indoors out, pockets for privacy and more. And a bonus chapter includes five small retreats --each less than 500 square feet--in the backyard and beyond that exemplify, in even smaller packages, many of the same design strategies portrayed by the case-study houses. For those longing for a simpler life, a small house may be right for you. The New Small House can get you started today.

Grand Designs Handbook: The Blueprint for Building Your Dream Home [used book], Kevin McCloud
6 Grand Designs Handbook: The Blueprint for Building Your Dream Home [used book]
Kevin McCloud UK Harper Collins 2009 000730742X / 9780007307425 Soft cover Good Book 27.2 x 19.2 x 2.2 cm 
TV's architecture and design guru Kevin McCloud shares his passion and expertise in this brilliant guide to designing and building your own home, illustrated with the most memorable houses from the award-winning Channel 4 series. The book goes way beyond the confines of the usual TV tie-in. Over the 11 years that Grand Designs has been on our screens, Kevin has had plenty of opportunity to formulate his own strong views on what makes truly brilliant architecture. For the first time he can share those views fully, showing that 'houses too can be architecture' and giving any aspiring self-builder the maximum number of tools to ensure that their vision becomes reality, with the minimum amount of heartache along the way.Through three main sections - 'Thinking', 'Dreaming' and 'Doing' - he guides you through each stage of the self-build process, from working out what you really want, to finding a plot, obtaining planning permission, commissioning and briefing architects and builders, and implementing the build itself. Structured around fundamental locations - urban, suburban and rural - Kevin presents his own compendium of houses from across the UK which he finds exciting and exemplary. Some of the most successful projects from the TV series are featured, including Monty Ravenscroft's innovative house in Peckham with its retractable roof, a reinvented violin factory in Waterloo, a converted barn in Ross-on-Wye, a spectacular loch-side house on the Clyde estuary and a glass pavilion on a beach near Exeter. As Kevin says, ' Green is no longer a weird colour to be' and running throughout the book is the theme of sustainable building and how to achieve it - not as some minority issue only of interest to those who knit their own sofas but as something which is increasingly central to how we will design, build and live in our homes.Passionate and opinionated, this book is always highly readable and engaging. For anyone who cares about design and for everyone who has ever thought about building their own home it is essential and truly inspiring reading.
