  •  I love Tiny Houses! (10+ / 0-)

    You might also check out the work of an architect and author named Sarah Susanka, who has several lavishly illustrated books on living smaller. She has one I like called "The Not So Big House" that addresses living in smaller places by building them more intelligently to begin with.

    It's not about the Tiny Houses movement, but if you like them, you might find her work interesting. Seems you could potentially incorporate some of her ideas into your eventual design. Your local public library might have some of her books.

    She also has a web site:

      although it seems as if the people who build her little houses have very large budgets. Still, lots of good ideas there.

      There was a vogue for small houses maybe 25 years ago, before McMansions came along, and prowling around in library stacks sometimes yields interesting results.
