    One thought on “Not So Big Solutions for Your Home

    1. Sarah Kingston on said:

      Not so big? This book defines "not so big" as anything under 5,000 square feet. I was amazed at the grandiosity of the not so big ideas, and at the amount of money and new materials that would have to go into changing your home to be like any of the homes highlighted here.

    2. Nick Woodall on said:

      I love all of Sarah Susanka's books! This one is especially replete with drawings and sketches and pictures, which really help me visualize the concepts she is talking about. I really liked this book for the space-saving ideas she had in it.

    3. Brian Rogers on said:

      This is my 3rd or 4th read of this volume, pulled off the shelf as we contemplate a kitchen remodel. Susanka's prose is clear and inviting, her ideas are well fleshed out and, just as importantly, humane. The idea that we should be building our houses to model how we live in and use spaces is obvious, but listening to the contractors we're talking to about the remodel still isn't fully absorbed in the trade -things that Susanka comments on such as ceiling heights influencing how we feel in a spa [...]

    4. Bickety Bam on said:

      The first thing you should know about this book is that it is a compilation of articles originally published in Fine Homebuilding magazine. Most of the illustrations are taken from photos in The Not So Big House and Creating the Not So Big House. So there isn't too much in terms of new examples, if you've already read those books.On the other hand, this book is more to the point if you're actually looking to do a project in your house. There is expansion on some of the ideas presented (i.e. Desi [...]

    5. Erika RS on said:

      Sarah Susanka's Not So Big Solutions For Your Home is a collection of articles from Fine Homebuilding magazine. I am a big fan of it because it talks about practical solutions to a lot of modern real world issues (e.g dealing with the TV and entering from the garage). Given the format, the articles do not cover a lot of issues (there are only 30 articles), but the topics that are covered are generally covered in more detail than elsewhere. I will admit that the last section, on remodeling, faile [...]

    6. Kaethe on said:

      Someday there will be theses written on how, during the 20th century, the first world home began devoting more and more space to waste. The gradual proliferation of household trash cans, followed by indoor and outdoor recycling bins, indoor and outdoor compost holders, and, in my own house, the ever-present "stuff to go to the thrift-store". Susanka and William McDonough are thinking about it, and no doubt many more will in time.

    7. Catherine on said:

      This is a great book for people interested in the Not-So-Big-House idea but who aren't ready to digest the original Not-So-Big-House book which, if I remember correctly, has a lot more about WHY we should build homes this way and fewer examples of practical implementations. I would say this is a must-read for those interested in building a home that will fit their lifestyle and needs, and not one that ends up being a big, soulless, McMansion box.

    8. Candy on said:

      I've read almost all of Sarah's books, so you would think that there would be nothing new in this book for me. It is "just" a compilation of articles she wrote for a magazine.Butere was some new information, and a great review of some things I already knew. Her pictures and diagrams are perfect for showing the concepts she is trying to explain.I am amazed by this writer/person. When you say someone "has it all together"-well, she is living proof that it is possible to be "all that".

    9. Greg Balzer on said:

      I read this books years ago but still use it today for practical design tips and concepts. It is particularly good for those who are looking to build or remodel a home. Sarah believes that small finely tuned homes are better than large non-specific dwellings, and in that same vein, this book packs a lot of useful information into a concise package.

    10. Patricia Herlevi on said:

      I enjoy reading architectural design books, especially books about houses. The author-architect Sarah Susanka takes novices through the process of designing smaller homes or renovating using existing space instead of adding on square footage. This book is a must-have for new home buyers, existing homeowners and anyone interested in transforming a house into a home.

    11. Shelah on said:

      a series of articles which Susanka wrote for Fine Homebuilding magazine. The articles go into greater detail about lots of the things she covered in The Not So Big House. I don't think I'll ever look at brick tape the same way again. Thank goodness most of the houses here in Texas (even the cheap ones like mine) have brick all the way around the house!

    12. Beth on said:

      Excellent ideas for organizing and doing minor renovations to your home to make it more liveable and more enjoyable. I'll definitely use this in planning to reorganize our home!I plan on buying a copy to make notes in and use as reference. It's that good.

    13. Daphne on said:

      I like the "not so big house" idea. This book has lots of interesting details. However, it is limited in scope. Basically, if you're building or remodeling, this book will help you. If you already have a house, and want to know how to live in it better, this book won't.

    14. Jodee on said:

      If you are designing new or remodeling and old, this had some great ideas about lighting, electrical outlet placement, you know all the little things that you always forget. The book was fun to look through and get future ideas.

    15. Sandy on said:

      what a fabulous book! Thinking of remodeling? Building a house? Get this book. It is really super. Even if you're just renovating a small space in your house, reference this book. It is really terrific.

    16. Juneau Public Library on said:

      Great ideas for organizing and decoration your small home. If you like this one, check out Susanka's other "Not so Big" books from Taunton Press, the folks behind Fine Homebuilding magazine. Recommended by Amelia

    17. Cathy on said:

      loved this. really interesting look at interior design for residential spaces.

    18. Chris on said:

      Things to think about when designing functional areas of the home.

    19. Kathleen on said:

      nice to see a useful book about small spaces. as opposed to surreal dreams

    20. Teeni on said:

      From articles Susanka wrote for a magazine, maybe Inspired Home, but I'm not sure. Great resource and one that shows you what an "outside the box" thinker Susanka is.

    21. Elaine on said:

      My architect recommended this whole series as we remodel our house. Lots of good ideas in this one, but a lot of it was on building from scratch and doesn't apply to us.

    22. Lisa on said:

      Provides great, practical advice for designing and remodeling your home.
