Reviews for Tiny Homes : Simple Shelter: Scaling Back in the 21st Century

Book News Reviews
From the author of Shelter, the 1973 seminal work on historical, small scale, and do-it-yourself home design and building, this utterly charming volume on tiny houses examines trends in conservation and moderation that have led to a resurgence in small, custom, and sustainable dwellings. The volume is divided into sections covering permanent homes, tiny homes on wheels, designs by architects, prefabs and kits, straw bale/cob, tree houses, mobile homes, and houseboats. Each featured home includes numerous color photographs of the project and architectural details, as well as commentary on the philosophies, motivations, and techniques of the builders.
