Dream big, build small! Whether it’s a first or second home—at the lake, in the woods, on a mountaintop, or at the ocean’s edge — a small-footprint house may be just what you want. Gerald Rowan presents 62 designs for cabins ranging from 100 to 1000 square feet, all of them appealing, affordable, comfortable, and energy-efficient. For every design, you’ll find inspirational floor plans and detailed, innovative suggestions on how to take advantage of every square inch. The plans are flexible, featuring modular elements that can be mixed and matched to suit your specific needs. And chapters on low-maintenance building materials, utilities and appliances, and alternative energy sources give you the background information you need to build and live efficiently in a small space.
