Everyone says they need more space, but... Maybe what you really need is a house that fits the way you live. And in Small Homes, a special issue from Fine Homebuilding, you’ll find a collection of well-designed homes built for the way real people live.
Good design in small packages. When homes are well designed—that is, when they’re designed for the people who will live in them—they tend to be smaller than average and better at meeting their occupants’ needs. But most homes are not designed by architects exactly for real people. And this is how so-called McMansions got their name.
Smart design you can put to work. Inside Small Homes, you’ll find projects such as Philip Ivory’s 1280-sq.-ft. retirement home, whose size and shape were driven by a challenging building site and the desire to capture the stunning views of New York’s Hudson River. You’ll see a range of styles—from an edgy and modern but still practical 1600-sq.-ft. high-performance home from Maine design/build firm GO Logic, to a midcentury-ranch remodel in Minneapolis, where architect Paul Buum designed a 2-ft. microaddition that transformed the home.
Dream small. Whether you live in a small home now and want to make it better or are ready to downsize to a smaller, more affordable, more comfortable, and more convenient home, this issue is a good place to start gathering ideas. Small Homes also covers:
- great small kitchen and bath design
- designs for a small deck and impactful outdoor spaces
- information on prefab homes
- building with components and modular units
