Cabins & Cottages and Other Small Spaces 

Paperback – Illustrated, Sept. 30 2014

by Editors of Fine Homebuilding


Bigger doesn't always mean better. Especially when it comes to your mortgage payment.  Unfortunately the recent real estate crisis taught us that important lesson. Cabins & Cottages: and Other Small Spaces will inspire you to think smaller and smarter.

Think small! With each turn of the page you'll be captivated by gorgeous photographs of inspiring, exciting small spaces. In this collection from Fine Homebuilding magazine, the featured authors focus on homes both new and remodeled, urban and rural, traditional and modern, and even a few truly quirky spaces like:

A Garden Cottage for Low-Impact Living
Watch Island Retreat
Do-it-Yourself Retreat
A Cottage Fit for a Hobbit
A New Floor Plan Saves an Old House
Carriage-House Comeback
A Better House Not a Bigger One
plus other small structures like Stylish Sheds, Studio, Storage and More.

Smaller=Smarter. Smaller homes can serve all the purposes of a much larger home, you simply need careful planning and smart strategies. Since smaller homes are becoming more popular-due to economic factors, smaller family sizes, tighter building lots, and the desire to use fewer natural resources-builders and designers are getting creative and employing all their best tricks to help homeowners get the most out of their tight spaces.

Small in structure. Big in style. The petite, stylish homes featured throughout Cabins & Cottagesare as big as they need to be and perfectly fit the lifestyles and aspirations of their homeowners. Get inspired and enjoy all design styles and construction types showcased here in hundreds of beautiful photographs.

All of the contributing authors are seasoned professionals whose articles have appeared in Fine Homebuilding magazine.
