Publisher's Summary

For many, the only way to go with housing is up: more rooms, more space, and more stuff to fill it all with. The only reason to save money is for them to get themselves into further debt to finance that huge house on the hill.

More and more though, people find that the bigger house doesn't give them a bigger life or any more satisfaction while they're living among all the empty rooms. What once seemed to impress their friends and neighbors now seems over the top in a world of minimalist designs and real environmental concerns.

Recent trends are favoring smaller, more compact and more self-conscious living. These homes are full of character, they are highly personalized, and they are driven by design and utility instead of might and size. In Cabins, Cottages and Teeny Tiny Living, you will be introduced into the world of smaller homes and all that they can offer you.

Whether you are looking for a small house, a shipping container home, a compact cabin, or even a tiny home you will be led with easy-to-follow and insightful advice that will take you from dreaming, to planning, to building your new small home with the bigger life.

Cabins and cottages have long been seen as a cute dream or only suitable for a holiday home but this is no longer the case. By using special techniques you can create smaller and custom made homes with all the fun cabins and cottages can offer right in your home town.

The stress of downsizing is no longer the burden it once was with the endless waves of innovation in the design world that allow you to have all the comforts of a modern life, and more, all in a few seamlessly connected small spaces.

Cool

No one book can thoroughly cover every design concept for tiny homes, but this one does a nice job. Adapting the floor plans to your own needs is very simple. This is a very useful book to keep in your library. This book is a great addition to any collection of home design books!

Inspiring

Listening this book inspired me to own a small house so I can be free from so much stress of cleaning a large property and focus on more important things in my life. The suggestions for maximizing the small spaces are very logical. It will be hard for those who are hoarders and packrats to live in this kind of house, but if you are a minimalist, this is ideal.

This book is great

This book is great if you think about moving to your own apartment and you are not sure if you can afford the house or if you are afraid to stay alone in the big house. The cottage is the great choice for you. It's not too big not too small, not too far from a city. This book gives you the great overview about cottages. There is basically all you need to know about them.

Informative

This Cabins, Cottages & Tiny Homes book has been an informative listen. It has some wise and useful tips on how one will be able to live from a big house to a tiny one. It has also discussed some ways on how one can adjust and how he can make the most of everything while living in a tiny house. It is said that tiny houses can help in organization and decluttering, so I believe that it is time to reorganize and rejuvenate.
