A collection of small-footprint designs that are affordable and energy efficient without skimping on comfort and style.


“Some of the designs in the book verge on the vacation-home look, but many are appealing in the way they play with the traditional presentation of a cabin. I was intrigued by the Micro Cabin at mere 162 square feet.”
