Fine Homebuilding: Downsize

Be Creative
Limits get a bad rap, but sometimes the limits we face make possible the release of our creativity. In this collection of articles, creativity abounds in the designs of a mountain cabin, a small house on an urban infill lot, five tiny houses—which are marvels of creative design in very limited spaces—and much more.

Be Smart
Downsizing can be about more than simply moving from a large space to a smaller one. At its best, downsizing is an opportunity to rethink how we live and to design (or redesign) accordingly.

Be Clever
Renovation can mean far more than replacing fixtures and materials and adding a coat of paint. Small spaces especially—whether kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, living spaces, or entire houses—offer chances for clever design strategies.

Bonus: Book Excerpt
Designers are responding to a call for small, affordable homes in urban areas. In an excerpt from his book Little House in the City, Marc Vassallo profiles three such homes: a new laneway house in Vancouver, B.C.; a modern house in Houston that combines two wings built over a decade apart; and a renovated bungalow in Seattle.
