As a fan of design and architecture I think this book does a superb job of demonstrating a beautiful marriage between land and structure and how attuned architects are creating ultra-effecient structures designed to conserve the environment and enhance the lives of their inhabitance. Part of my fascination with the book is my curiosity of how the architects profiled in the book through their homes do a fantastic job of making tiny spaces appear and function as a space much larger than then one would believe based on the square footage footprint alone. All in all, this book has beautiful detailed photos and well thought out text profiling each of the homes from the conception to to realization.

I bought this book for my father as a Christmas gift. He's an amateur architect and loves the nano house movement. The pictures and articles in the book are fantastic and definitely give great ideas on how to live in a small space.

However, the book itself is small but thick, and the size of the pictures is a little underwhelming. I was expecting a 12"x12" or bigger coffee table book, but the actual dimensions are about 8x8" which doesn't lend itself to big photos. The thickness of the book makes it hard to lie down on the table, and keeping it open without breaking the spine is a struggle.

Pros:

Love the houses
Articles are full of good insight

Cons:

The format is too small

great book, lots of project ideas and little tweaks to add to your thoughts on how to live small. Only complaint is some of the images and descriptions left a lot to be desired. The images were all wonderful, just not as informative as some would like.

Of course, this is full of tiny home examples. Moreover, they are all beautiful. They also do not attempt to be a miniature version of a "normal"-sized house. Instead, they glorify the advantages and grace.

I was a little disappointed in the size... I should have read more closely. Would love to be able to see the pictures better.

I didn't find the plans in this book that great. After going through the book, I looked up nano houses in google images and found way more information doing that. From now I'll will use google images before wasting my money on a book.
