My Word Gift Guide #11: The Not So Big House

#11 The Not So Big House

As anyone who knows me can tell you, I am a geek in all things. One of my “other” geekdoms is architecture. I tend to read a lot about it and also seek out great examples such as the Frank Lloyd Wright and Richard Neutra homes we have right here in LA. Sarah Susanka’s series of books are about new thoughts in architecture. Instead of building everything bigger, like the numerous “McMansions” also here in LA, she consuls you to build smarter. Instead of building huge homes were rooms regularly go unused, Susanka calls for smaller homes designed for the way we actually live. The savings generated by small square foot houses are turned back into amazing design details that make the home more livable and flexible.
