Fabulous photographs accompanied by apt cameo briefs for each featured home made for a delightful evening of perusing. Many styles and themes from hither-and-yon around the globe - artful, mainstream, eccentric, eco-friendly, off-the-grid, into-the wild, urban wonders, country charmers - there's a style for just about everyone's sensitivities and tastes.

Great book for anyone looking for ideas on downsizing, and with a plethora of options for deviating from the same-old-same-old. A good jumping

This book is so crammed! Crammed with personal stories, crammed with pictures, crammed with ideas. It's delightful that way, but also a little frustrating -- it can be hard to pick through the blast of information without skimming. Still, it's a lot of amazing hand built projects, a lot of dreams that came together beautifully.

Lots of great small homes here to peruse along with some information on the building process. Also great to see lived-in homes rather than ones set up like magazine shoots.
so many good ideas!

Meh. I wish it had more details/floor plans. The aesthetics of this book were distracting -- looked low-budget.

Beautiful colour photos accompanied by stories of the builders. So much variety and tons of great ideas for off- grid and all!

build-your-own; no staging done ... all homes look clutter lived-in
