Editorial Reviews

Review

“An anti-McMansion manifesto, this book surveys sustainability built houses whose owners gave up space for social conscience.” ~Details 

“Mimi Zeiger has captured the lifestyle of downsizing in her new book, Micro Green: Tiny Houses in Nature (Rizzoli, 2011). From dwellings that utilize structures in the woods, to homes built on wheels, Zeiger has shown the art of compact living through thirty-six different and unique examples.” ~Cottages-Gardens.com
 
“Zeiger features a range of environmentally friendly tiny dwellings from across the globe in her luscious book…” ~Mother Earth News

Format: Hardcover
One of the better eye-candy micro-housing books that has come out in quite some time....a huge array of stiles, from the rustic and d.i.y., to the overly modern (and expensive), Micro-Green certainly will hook you regardless of your tastes or principals. Some of the ideas aren't so practical, but that's half the fun and beauty of this book....some very wild ideas in this one.

For fans of the tiny house books of: Lloyd Kahn, Ruth Slavid, and Derek Diedricksen

Book contains some really interesting ideas about going small and going green. I wish it was a bit more technical.
