Small Homes: The Right Size by Lloyd Khan - book review


Lloyd Khan and Shelter Publications have a long tradition of writing and publishing fine books about small architectural builds. The latest is this fine volume 'Small Homes: The Right Size' which they describe as a book about homes that are larger than “tiny” but smaller than the national average so is still of interest and includes examples from around the world, including Scotland. Here's what they say about it:
Compared to the average American home, small homes are less expensive, use less resources, are more efficient to heat and cool, and cheaper to maintain and repair. These are (but for a few) between 400–1200 square feet of floor area - less than half the size of the typical new American home. The homes here - some 65 of them - vary from unique and artistic to simple and low-cost. Some are plain, ordinary buildings that provide owners shelter at a reasonable cost - and some are inspiring examples of design, carpentry, craftsmanship, imagination, creativity, and homemaking.
