So long McMansions and rambling square footage...small homes are in! Easier to maintain and more affordable in hard economic times, small houses are gaining popularity in the housing market after nearly 60 years of trending up in size. Small Houses capitalizes on this shift with an all-new collection of small houses from Fine Homebuilding magazine. The featured writers, well-respected authors in their fields, look at houses--ranging from less than 1,250 sq. ft. to upward of 2,250 sq. ft.--that are both new and remodeled, urban and rural, traditional and modern. Homeowners will be pleasantly surprised that these small homes are big on charm, style, and quality and offer all types of exciting possibilities and energy efficiencies to mesh with and improve their lifestyle.

In this new collection of small houses from Fine Homebuilding magazine, the authors look at houses both new and remodeled, traditional and modern, urban and rural, by the water and in the mountains. The houses exude as much style as homes many times their square footage, and all are as big as they need to be to fit the lifestyles and aspirations of the people who live in them. Houses include: bungalow on a budget magnificent mountain cabin family-friendly remodel garden cottage for low-impact living design/build delight in the desert little house on an urban infill modern Victorian in a mountain resort With the growing popularity of small, micro, and tiny houses, it's no surprise that the average house size is actually trending smaller in recent years. Between 1950 and 2009, the average American home soared from a modest 983 sq. ft. to over 2500 sq. ft., but now we've dropped back to about 2400 sq. ft. There are a number of reasons for this unprecedented reversal: economic (the Great Recession), demographic (family size continues to get smaller), and energy-efficiency related (smaller houses draw more frugally from the earth's resources).
