The Not So Big House by Sarah Susanka

The Not So Big House by Sarah Susanka is an excellent coffeetable book. Enticing images and the promise of happiness are the selling points for a practical book on home design. The concept of an "away" room particularly appealed. It's a small space, a retreat. In real life, it's reassuring to see architects are incorporating such ideas into reasonably priced homes. The floor plan of "Shenton Lakes" by Dale Alcock Homes includes a sitting space opening into a front veranda that is pleasantly "away" in a small home.
