The New Small House
Smaller is big, says architect and author Katie Hutchison, whose book The New Small House shows those looking to downsize how they can live smartly, economically and environmentally friendly in elegantly designed homes.
With 275 gorgeous photographs and 30 detailed illustrations, The New Small House takes the reader on a tour of North America and spotlights small houses in rural, coastal, and in-town locations. The book presents fundamental small-house design strategies, complete with whole-house case studies for homeowners eager to simplify.
The New Cottage
Cottages are the quintessential American home, but even this ever-popular house type has room for innovation. In The New Cottage, Katie Hutchison outlines ten key design strategies that characterize captivating cottages and then demonstrates how this classic home type can be updated for the needs of modern living, balancing transience and durability, togetherness and solitude, the high tech and the homespun.
