Little House in the City
by Marc Vassallo
Hardcover

A change is taking place all across the country: the growing popularity of small houses and the movement back to living in the city, where people are buying, building, and fixing up little houses. Whether you’re looking to build from scratch or remodel an existing structure, Little House in the City celebrates the shift. The 37 small houses from cities across North America offer all the inspiration you need to make your home in the city a reality. Ranging in size from 350 to 1,800 square feet, the down-to-earth dwellings include infill houses constructed in vacant lots and underutilized spaces, remodels, and backyard residences that add density while respecting the character of the neighborhood.

About the Author:
Marc Vassallo has spent over two decades in publishing and is former Editorial Director of The Taunton Press. Author of The Barefoot Home, Vassallo has written for numerous magazines and literary journals and received a Fellowship in Fiction from the National Endowment for the Arts. He lives in Seattle and is an avid backpacker and urban gardener.
