Small Homes 2017
by The Editors of Fine Homebuilding
Special Issue
Inspiring examples. The best small homes are designed for specific homeowners. Whether the goal is to downsize for less maintenance, to build a great home for less money, or to live small at home so they can live big in the rest of their life, the design should reflect the homeowners’ intentions and lifestyle. In this issue you’ll find project that meet the homeowners’ needs exceedingly well with inspiring design lessons that you can use for your own small home.
 
Hardworking rooms. There are a few rooms on which we make nearly impossible demands, most notably our kitchens and baths. When we make these rooms smaller, they have to be exponentially more efficient, have even smarter storage, and still allow the multi-tasking and social activities we expect from them. In this issue of Small Homes we have a collection of kitchens and baths that do just that without sacrificing the style that makes them special.
 
Clever solutions. We spend a lot of time designing and living in our kitchens, baths, bedrooms and family rooms, and we want them to feel spacious and uncluttered. Often the best way to achieve our goals for these rooms in in the periphery, a theme in this year’s Small Homes. Clever cabinetry solutions and utility spaces like mudrooms take the pressure off living spaces providing purposeful and useful storage for the things we use a lot and the things we use a little but still can’t live without.
 
Opportunities to dream. We’ve included an inspiring excerpt from architect and author Dale Mulfinger’s new Book “The Family Cabin.” This collection of family retreats includes classic cottages and modern cabins in stunning remote locations and is meant both for readers who looking for ideas for a new home and those looking for a getaway of their own.
 
Also inside:
Designing for a small budget build
Rethinking walls for performance and style
Mudroom design ideas
Designing a home for a tight lot
Bungalows, Cottages, Cabins, Modern homes and more...
