Architect Susanka's Not So Big home remodeling philosophy, familiar from national television shows and magazines, puts emphasis on quality rather quantity, green materials, and livability. Here, she teams with co-author Vassallo to show how to employ smaller and less expensive approaches (if building an addition is your idea of less expensive) for turning an average house into a home. Susanka illustrates steps she took for remodeling her own home, then applies Not So Big principles to frequent problems with exteriors and entrances, kitchens and gathering spaces, baths, and personal spaces, with illustrated case studies of real homes. Susanka is a member of the College of Fellows of the American Institute of Architects. Vassallo trained as an architect, and co-authored Inside the Not So Big House with Susanka.

I'm a sucker for home design books and magazines, and I think I have a pretty good eye for design, but I have a small house. I like the attention to detail in this series of books, and the examples the book gives for different situations. There is lots of information here, and before and after plans and images to give the reader a feel for the changes. Gave me some more things to think about for my house, if I ever have the energy to get back at it.
