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.

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
