Product Description

Tiny Houses is an invitation to dream and, perhaps, to build any one of the 43 charming tiny houses. Both playful tribute and handy how-to, this is a wonderfully illustrated volume that features hundreds of photographs and detailed scale drawings. Whether you're a student of philosophy aspiring to build a replica of Thoreau's cabin, an ice fisherman in need of four walls to fend off winter winds, or just a dreamer with a vision of a humble cottage on a quite seashore, Tiny Houses is a precious resource for ideas, instruction, and inspiration.

Praise for Tiny Houses:

““Part history, part fantasy, part builder’s guide, this engaging book reflects our continuing fascination with smallness and miniaturization.” —Witold Rybczynski, author of Home

“Anyone who’s ever dreamed of building a little place to get away from it all should put this lively book under his pillow . . . This book provides solid foundations to build your dreams on.” —Washington Times Magazine

Lester Walker is an award-winning architect and author of numerous books including Designing A House, American Shelter, and Block Building for Children. He lives in Woodstock, New York, where his architectural firm is based.
