The Simple Home (eBook)

If somewhere deep inside you're yearning for a simpler life, here's a book that can put you on the right path.

The Simple Home explores the inspiration and philosophy behind 21 simple - yet extraordinary - homes built in diverse areas of the country. All designed, built or renovated around the simple needs of each owner.

You'll discover the warmth and intimacy of human-scaled rooms, the radiant beauty of natural light, and the versatility of functional, straightforward floor plans. And you'll follow each owner on a fascinating journey of self-discovery and liberation achieved by simply going back to basics.

The 21 featured homes are organized according to six different pathways, each owner arriving at his own concept of simple with an emphasis on slightly different priorities.

From uncluttered minimalism and thrifty efficiency to 'green' design practices and energy-efficient strategies, every one has a different definition of simple.

With engaging words and pictures, the book reveals how all have brought their visions to life -- building comfortable, customized homes that are uniquely personal.

Here are a few examples of what you'll find.
  • A rebuilt cabin on the north shore of Lake Superior with windows that let the sun shine in from dawn to dusk, with stunning views of the lake and birch forest
  • A Sonoma, California farmhouse that uses 'green strategies' to reduce energy consumption
  • An 1840 Creole cottage in Louisiana that's been transformed into a quaint bed and breakfast
  • A modern townhouse in San Francisco with an open design that's simple - yet elegant - with expansive views of the cityscape
From the warmth of winter sunlight streaming through a skylight to the sweet scent of wildflowers wafting through an open window, your home should be a place where you enjoy the simple pleasures of life.

With hundreds of colorful photos and inspirational ideas, this delightful book will open your eyes to a new way of living.
