Our Next Book - SMALL HOMES - Now In Production

This is turning out to be really fun. We've accumulated material for maybe a year and now, the book is starting to assemble itself, in random manner. Organizing will come later.

Note: contact us if you know of small homes (400-1200 sq. ft.) that would work in this book:

We are especially interested in any kind of homes in cities and towns.
