The Tiny Book of Tiny Houses is 6 1/2" by 5 1/2", and has just ninety-five pages with big print. There are many photographs (a lot of these by the author), and many of the line drawings that Walker does so well. This book is NOT a plan book or a "how to "book. It is intended to inspire readers to build their own tiny dwellings, and to show (by example) how other people have gone about this rewarding task. Mr. Walker makes the point, and rightly so, that building a tiny house is easy enough that most people can do it.
Many of Walker's ddrawings show the furniture arrangements of the little houses. I found this feature of special interest. With tiny houses (or "Minicabins") thrifty use of space, through arrangement of what is IN that space, can make a large difference in comfort.
Walker presents seventeen mini marvels, ranging in size from 124 square feet (the "Frontier Cabin") to 26 square feet ("Poetry House", a converted privey!).Read more ›
We live in a small home (900 sq. ft 1800's cottage) by California standards and are designing an equally small newer home geared for us as we age.
But it is charming and charming books belong in my life.
It is a great "idea" book to give anyone looking to build a place to have a space of their own.

Be prepared for a quick read. Pictures and a brief history of each house is all you get.
The histories are interesting.
